Vive la TDD
Interesting how little attention this announcement seems to have received, possibly because the deployment France Telecom is pursuing in its home market seems fairly innocuous and non-threatening. What I would be more interested to learn is what scope there is to exploit this in the residential space in markets where FT/Orange is a bit weaker (Netherlands, UK). In the UK, where Orange and Wanadoo appear to be lining up a more coherent cross-marketing arrangement, this could be really interesting. In fact any UK operator has the spectrum to pursue this line, with the exception of Vodafone, whose license contains no TDD, and I assume from comments here that OFCOM would welcome such a development.
