Czech mobile start-up U:fon, the operating arm of local concern MobilKom, is launching two new tariffs to residential customers, offering bundled voice telephony and internet access with connection speeds of between 256kbps and 700kbps, for either CZK400 or CZK600 (USD18.69 or USD28.04) per month. U:fon started out as a data services provider and added mobile voice calls to its existing portfolio of data transmission and fixed-wireless call services in June 2008. Its CDMA network now covers 80% of the population, a figure it hopes to increase to 85% by the end of the year.
Czech alternative operator Ceske Radiokomunikace (CRa), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Falcon Group which is itself 74.6%-owned by Mid Europa Partners, has reportedly launched a new 3.5GHz WiMAX service in Prague offering voice, data and internet access services to SMEs in the capital. Dutch company Telecompaper says that its WiMAX-based services are currently only available in Prague and its environs. CRa is offering a number of tariff plans for the new service, including a premium WiMAX offering, and is targeting residential and business customers.
