Axesstel wins BellSouth fixed wireless handsets order

Bnamericas Published: Monday, April 12, 2004
San Diego-based Axesstel (OTCBB: AXES) said Monday it has won a contract to supply fixed wireless handsets for the 10 Latin American operations of BellSouth International, prompting renewed speculation about the future of those assets. Axesstel said it will supply custom-configured models of its CDMA2000 1x advanced fixed wireless desktop phone terminals. "The telephones specified in the supply agreement, which are customized to cost-effectively provide basic wireless telephone access and text messaging capabilities, will be marketed by 10 Latin American BellSouth affiliates to their residential and business customers," Axesstel said. BellSouth has sold its 10 Latin American mobile operations to Spain's Telefónica Móviles (NYSE: TEM), but neither company has yet made a clear statement as to the future of BellSouth's fixed wireless operations.
