NII Holdings which operates a Nextel branded iDEN network in Latin America is considering migrating to LTE, although no decision has been taken yet.

The company's executive VP, chief strategy and marketing manager, Greg Santoro, told BNamericas that they are evaluating their options as they deploy 3G networks which will be an overlay of their iDEN service.

The company has no concrete plans beyond the 3G deployment, but is looking at options as that can affect 3G hardware purchases.

The company doesn't want to "wait too long" before deploying 4G in select areas though the executive added.
