TORONTO, Sept. 23 /CNW/ - Data & Audio Visual Enterprises Wireless Inc. (DAVE Wireless) today announced that it has signed a licensing agreement with Bell Mobility for wireless cell-site sharing.
Under the terms of the agreement, DAVE Wireless will be able to negotiate the placement of its own wireless equipment on Bell Mobility cell sites, where space is available and in accordance with all governmental guidelines and Bell requirements.
"With the upcoming launch of DAVE Wireless, our ability to gain access to valuable real estate on Bell Mobility's existing cell sites moves us another step closer to offering competitive voice and data services to Canadians," said Dave Dobbin, President of DAVE Wireless. "By using existing infrastructure built by Bell, we can greatly quicken our time to market in the fast-paced wireless industry."
Bell Mobility operates thousands of cell sites across Canada, with digital coverage reaching more than 93 per cent of Canadians. Last year, Bell announced a significant strategic investment in a new national 3G HSPA network, which will be up and operating in time for the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. Bell's new network will operate alongside the company's existing 3G wireless network, which is already Canada's largest.
