SAN FRANCISCO-Ameritech Cellular Services said it is close to launching its ClearPath Code Division Multiple Access digital service in Chicago. The company said it expects to launch by the end of the second quarter.
Final steps include employee trials and network optimization. The company then will begin preloading analog customers onto the digital system by providing them with dual-mode phones.
“We are taking all of these steps to make the transition to ClearPath as transparent and seamless as we can for our customers,” said John Rooney, president of Ameritech Cellular. “As we’ve said from day one, we won’t launch it until it’s the world class service our customers have come to expect from Ameritech.”
The company said it will launch ClearPath in Detroit during the second half of the year.
