Tele2 picks NSN as sole 4G supplier
NSN will be solely responsible for offering 4G connectivity to Tele2 customers in Estonia and Lithuania, and will also upgrade the carrier’s 2G and 3G networks.
Tele2 is deploying 4G to meet increasing demand for mobile broadband services spurred by growing smartphone penetration in the two countries, Central Europe and Eurasia director Niklas Sonkin explains. He said NSN’s infrastructure will enable the firm to launch LTE over different frequency bands, and offer a reliable service to subscribers.
“It is critical for operators such as Tele2 to upgrade their existing networks,” says Armando Almeida, head of Europe and Africa customers at NSN. He notes such upgrades “save equipment and operational costs today and tomorrow.”
