Xfera successfully completes the first 3G-call on its network

TeliaSonera’s mobile operator in Spain, Xfera, today completed the first call using the UMTS network that the company is rolling out in the country.

“The first call marks a milestone in our countdown to launch before the end of the year, and guarantees – together with the roaming agreement we have with Vodafone - a seamless nationwide quality coverage for all of our future customers”, says Johan Andsjö, President of Xfera.

As stated in August, Ericsson is the vendor in charge of the network roll out project and has been working alongside Xfera in setting up the network infrastructure since June 2006.
