The Plessey-Telenet Ltd joint venture doesn’t have much to say on its own account just at the moment, so it has sent out a couple of announcements about international business done by one of its two parents, Telenet Communications Corp, now part of US Sprint Communications: the first is a contract to build the first packet-switched network in Pakistan for Pakistan Telephone & Telegraph, which wants a network capable of interconnecting personal computers and terminals Pakistan-wide with host bureau and services computers, with primary nodes in Karachi, Isalamabad and Lahore; no value was given for that contract, but $1m plus is the value put on a contract with Telenet for Syarikat Telekom Malaysia, which wants an X400 national public electronic mail service using Telemail 400, which will run over the Maypac X25 packet-switched network, needless to say also installed by Telenet.
