L M Ericsson Telefon AB will supply its Mobitex radio switches for the network, which will be operated by Data Transmission Services Inc, owned by RAM, Ericsson and Nordbanken AB of Sweden outside the BellSouth area. As part of the deal, BellSouth, investing $300m altogether, will pay RAM $35m for 26% more of Honolulu Cellular Telephone Co, taking its stake up to 51%.
