3 to offer roaming on Telstra's upcoming 3G network

The company will use parts of Telstra's 8500MHz network, and build some infrastructure of its own, to expand its 3G coverage to include 96 percent of the population.

Hutchinson Telecommunications Australia (ASX:HTA) subsidiary 3 has reached an agreement which will allow the company to offer 3G roaming on parts of Telstra's (ASX:TLS) upcoming 850MHz network.

Hutchinson also plans to build new infrastructure in areas where roaming is prevalent.

With these initiatives Hutchinson is planning to increase 3's 3G Network coverage - and therefore its potential customer base - to include 96 percent of the population by the second half 2009.

Currently the company only covers 56 percent of the population.

3's 3G network was the first of its kind in Australia, and is shared with Telstra.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
