The news was out that Ntel will be doing a local roaming field trial with 9Mobile for a period of 60 days start from this month (December 2017). This a great news for the Telecom industry, most especially our “bros” operating under the “4G/LTE only” platform. With this innovation companies operating on CDMA, GSM or 4G/LTE only can partner with their counter-parts running on other platforms to add more value to their customers’ experience.
What this means is that if you are a customer to Ntel (who are rendering 4G/LTE service to their customers), you can make calls on 9Mobile’s network using any 2G or 3G handset with your Ntel 4G/LTE sim anywhere 9Mobile service is available.
To me, this is a nice try. I hope the trial will be successful.
