Three Sweden deploys Nokia’s TD-LTE-Advanced mobile broadband technology in Sweden significantly enhancing the quality of service in the country.
Sweden will use the spectrum in the 2600 MHz band 38 – currently used by only a few operators in Western Europe – to deploy TD-LTE-Advanced technology. This will allow them to immediately increase bandwidth and speeds for customers, meeting the growing demand for mobile use in the home.
Commenting on the deployment, Jörgen Askeroth, CTO at 3 Sweden said, “As one of Sweden’s leading operators, we are constantly looking at ways to enhance the overall quality of our mobile voice and data services. In line with this vision, we are working with Nokia to tap the potential of TD-LTE-A in order to deliver a truly memorable service experience to our subscribers. In doing so, we are proud to launch one of Western Europe’s first TD-LTE-A deployments on band 38 – a development that underlines our reputation as an innovation leader in the domestic telecommunications market.”
Nokia will complete the network deployment in the first half of 2016.
“We are extremely pleased to support 3 Sweden in its ambitious and far-reaching TD-LTE-A initiative that will delight its customers. This project bears testimony to our growing status as the supplier-of-choice in Europe, with a clear focus on leveraging technologies that allow operators to provide the best possible mobile broadband experience to their users,” said Wolfgang Hackenberg, VP West Europe at Nokia.
