Scottish Highlands get blanket 3G coverage

Re: signal box on EE

Correct. The box is developed by Ubiquisys. However it is sold to operators through their systems integrators, NEC and Nokia Siemens, who already have a foothold in the operators core networks.

The same basic 'G3' box is used for SFR, Three and EE (T-Mobile and Orange). They just connect to their respective core networks, and potentially have different software loads on them.

Re: signal box on EE

'The signal box from three looks like a ubiquisys Fap not Siemens'

Ubiquisys make the FAP, but it is being sold via Nokia Siemens and NEC (who are their systems Integrators and who typically already have a foot hold in the operators network).

It is essentially the same box as is used for SFR, Three and EE (Orange and T-Mobile). They just use different core networks and possibly slightly different software loads.

Fon community embraces GSM

FAIL

Shouldn't this be 'Fon community embraces UMTS'?

I am not aware of Ubiquisys supporting GSM in their femtocells?

Checking the press release on the Ubiquisys site they only mention 3G femtocells - there is no mention of GSM.
