CDMA Community Calls For Harmonized Spectrum Allocation Worldwide To Facilitate International Roaming
COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 7, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- The CDMA Development Group (CDG) (www.cdg.org) today reported that the issue of international roaming for both voice and 3G data services emerged as a prevailing theme at its 2004 CDMA Americas Congress, held in Miami last week. One of the key issues raised was the harmonization of spectrum allocation for CDMA to ensure global roaming for CDMA users worldwide. In this regard, a special reference was made to the experience in India where CDMA operators are facing the problem of spectrum allocation in the 1900 MHz band which is being used by CDMA operators in many regions such as Asia, North and Latin America. This allocation is being opposed by the GSM operators, more on the commercial grounds of preventing the growth of CDMA services in that part of the world rather than for any technical reasons.
