In Ireland an operator claim to use it.
Perhaps it is not mandatory to have the PBCCH in the MPDCH, we just need the PCCCH and the PDTCH in the dedicated PDCH. And the PS SI is broadcast in the BCCH.
I have to see with people that are contact with this operator
An other thing is , If we use DTM (dual transfert mode)I think the MS will be able to read at the same time PBCCH and BCCH
