Bouygues Telecom has selected Nortel's HSDPA technology to provide customers in France with services such as high-quality live TV, high definition video on demand, MP3 streaming and multi-user mobile gaming when it goes live in early 2007. The new 5-year contract stipulates that Nortel is responsible for rolling out the network in 4 out of 6 of Bouygues Telecom's operational regions in France; including the Western, South Western, Northeastern and Mediterranean regions.

Nortel's HSDPA solution can provide connectivity at speeds up to 7.2 Mbps.
