The need for higher bandwidth is unlimited. The usage of smart phones has exploded all around the world. Customers’ behaviours have changed dramatically. Therefore, TeliaSonera invests for increased capacity in both fixed and mobile networks.

In Sweden, TeliaSonera has invested in more nationwide frequencies in the 1800 MHz band for the on-going build-out of Sweden’s largest 4G network and for strengthening the nationwide mobile telephony network. The new frequencies will provide customers with even more bandwidth for their surf needs in the 4G network at the same time the nationwide mobile telephony network is strengthened.

The 4G roll out also continues in both Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. In Sweden 660 cities will have 4G by the end of 2012.

TeliaSonera will also invest more than SEK 8 billion in the fiber roll out until 2014, of which SEK 5 billion in Sweden. And expect 2.3 million households to be connected by 2014 in the Nordics and Baltics (1 million in Sweden). Apart from that the broadband network in Sweden is upgraded with VDSL 2 (investment of 500 millions).

In Denmark Telia entered into a network sharing agreement with Telenor to create Denmark’s best mobile network (2G, 3G, 4G) and in Spain our brand Yoigo upgraded the 3G mobile network to higher speed and wider coverage in the major cities in Spain.
