Cable & Wireless Inc, the C&W subsidiary which operates a
long-distance network in the USA, is planning to roll out a national
US cellular service via a series of resale agreements with the largest
US cellular operators.  It signed the first resale agreement last
month with Bell Atlantic Nynex Mobile, the largest cellular operator
in the USA, which is present in 13 north-eastern and eastern seaboard
states.  

C&W will launch its first commercial resale operations this autumn,
starting in the cities of Washington DC, Baltimore, Pittsburgh and
Philadelphia, before expanding to other parts of the Bell Atlantic-
Nynex region.  It is also in talks with other cellular and personal
communications service (PCS) operators to spread its service to the
rest of the country.  The company, which is targeting small and
medium-sized companies, plans to offer the cellular service with a
bundle of other services -- including the long-distance and data
services which it already offers.  Customers will pay for all of these
services on a single bill.
