TORONTO, June 4 /CNW/ - Data & Audio Visual Enterprises Wireless Inc.
(DAVE Wireless) announced today it has entered into an agreement with T-Mobile
USA, Inc., enabling voice and data roaming for its future subscribers while
travelling in the United States.
"Signing our first international roaming agreement with T-Mobile USA, who
is a leader in wireless, made perfect sense for DAVE Wireless," said Dave
Dobbin, President of DAVE Wireless. "This will allow us to deliver 3G voice
and data services to our customers and will provide access to extensive
wireless coverage throughout the U.S."
The roaming agreement between DAVE Wireless and T-Mobile USA provides
reciprocal roaming on each company's network in the markets where service is
available. DAVE Wireless customers will be able to roam on T-Mobile USA's
growing 3G network and on T-Mobile USA's GSM network throughout the United
States. T-Mobile USA customers will be able to roam on DAVE Wireless' UMTS
network in 10 of the 13 largest markets in Canada following the planned
commercial launch in the first half of 2010.
"UMTS is considered to be the next generation of wireless technology and
as we move forward with our launch, we will be looking to develop more diverse
roaming partnerships to provide our customers with affordable access to voice
and data wireless services outside our target markets and internationally,"
said Dobbin. "The network technology strategy we adopted will not only allow
us to provide our customers with the latest and most innovative handsets, but
