OMNIPOINT USERS TO ROAM IN FRANCE

CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J.-New Jersey-based personal communications services carrier Omnipoint Communications Inc. has entered into a partnership agreement with France Telecom that will allow Omnipoint customers to begin operational roaming while traveling in France.

Omnipoint said France Telecom is its eighth international partner.

Omnipoint and France Telecom operate on different frequency bands (1.9 GHz and 900 MHz, respectively) but because they employ Global System for Mobile communications technology, customers can roam via Subscriber Identity Module card technology, the company said. The SIM card carries all of a subscriber’s service information. Customers insert the card into a GSM handset designed for use overseas and use the service as they would in the United States.
