Ericsson and Nokia have won a contract to supply equipment for T-Mobile’s 3G network in the U.S. The contract comes on the heels of announcement by parent, Deutsche Telekom, that it would spend$2.64 billion on a U.S. 3G network. According to an RBC Capital Markets report (an excerpt was posted by GigaOm), “Ericsson may be gaining share from Alcatel/Lucent and Nokia/Siemens, both of whom are mired in major integration efforts. . . Nortel is losing share largely in part due to it abandoned UMTS plans.” A Light Reading story can be found here.
