T-Mobile said it was pleased with its trial of Flarion gear in the Netherlands: Not to totally discount T-Mobile’s words, but it should be noted that T-Mobile is also an investor in Flarion. Most customer trials I’ve heard of with Flarion have been positive but Flarion has a major hurdle in Europe in that its technology can’t be deployed in the UMTS bands. European regulators often designate exactly which technologies can be deployed in which frequency bands and Flarion is not included as an option in the 3G bands. Rumors have been floating around that Flarion may try to enter the process to become part of the family of standards that is approved in the 3G bands, but that is likely a very long process. Meanwhile, an operator would have to try to use other bands. Despite this issue, the T-Mobile trial in the Netherlands used the 2.1 GHz 3G band.
