SKYTEL LAUNCHES SERVICE IN MARKETS ACROSS U.S.

True to its claim that it would launch two-way paging by mid-year, SkyTel Corp. is turning on commercial service Sept. 19 in 30 to 50 markets throughout the country.

With this launch, SkyTel will be the first paging operator to commercially offer two-way paging. SkyTel is a subsidiary of Mobile Telecommunication Technologies Corp. The company plans to have its SkyTel 2-Way personal communications services available in 300 U.S. markets by year’s end.

SkyTel will use Motorola Inc.’s ReFLEX 50 protocol and Tango pager in the United States. At launch, service will offer preprogrammed message capability as well as multiple choice responses. Service is expected to begin at $25 a month.
