Tele2 and Telenor select Huawei for LTE

Net4Mobility, the joint venture by Tele2 and Telenor, has selected Huawei Technologies as its lead supplier for LTE for a nationwide 4G network in Sweden. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The goal is that 99 percent of the Swedish population will be able to access the new network before the end of 2013, starting with densely populated areas. The deployment also includes increasing the number of base stations for voice traffic in 2G/GSM by 30-50 percent, with enhanced indoor- and outdoor coverage across the country as a result.
