TeliaSonera has chosen suppliers for mobile network in Norway

“We are building a new, world class mobile network in Norway with 2G, 3G and 4G access to offer our customers a major coverage and speed improvement. We have selected Huawei and Ericsson to deliver the network based on their high quality technology and competitive total solutions, “ says Claes Nycander, CTO of Mobility Services at TeliaSonera.

Huawei is providing equipment for the southern part of the network and Ericsson for the northern part.

Extensive 4G network roll out

“In 2012, 95 percent of the Norwegian population will have 3G coverage and 89 percent of the population will have access to 4G services. This will dramatically change the way our customers can use mobile broadband services, “ says Claes Nycander.

TeliaSonera was the first operator in the world to commercially launch 4G. We offer our customers 4G in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Estonia with speeds up to ten times higher than for today’s 3G.
