TeliaSonera signs agreement with National Police Board

The National Swedish Police Board (Rikspolisstyrelsen) has commissioned
TeliaSonera Sweden to build the new communications platform DART2 for
the Swedish police force. The agreement, signed between the National
Swedish Police Board and TeliaSonera Sweden, is estimated to be worth
between SEK 200 million and SEK 250 million. The agreement is valid for
a three-year period and the National Swedish Police Board has the option
to extend the agreement on an annual basis, although not longer than to
April 30, 2010.

DART 2 will be used to link communication systems for data, radio,
telephony, video and alarm handling at more than 500 police stations in
Sweden. The platform is to be implemented by April 2006 at the latest.

"Functionality and high security are decisive when we select
communication solutions and we put extremely tough demands on our
suppliers," says Paul Bärlund, IT manager for the National Swedish
Police Board. "Telia showed that it was capable of meeting our stringent
requirements - that's why we chose them."

"Our solution will give Sweden's police force a modern communications
platform that can grow with the task and become an effective tool for
police operations for many years to come," says Anders Gylder, head of
the Large Corporate Customers Segment at TeliaSonera Sweden.

According to the terms of the agreement, Telia will assume completely
responsibility for the functionality of the platform. The solution is
based on TeliaSonera's datacom service TeliaSonera DataNet International
(DNI) and will be supplemented with other standard services from Telia's
range of offerings, such as TeliaSonera HomeRun (mobile broadband) and
Telia Mobile OnLine (GPRS and 3G) for mobile data traffic, enabling the
police to also gain access to their operating systems when they are not
at their police stations. The agreement also gives the police the
possibility to use video conferencing to increase the efficiency of
their operations.
