Tele2 and Telenor Sweden have together secured crucial spectrum in the 3.5 GHz spectrum auction.
Combined with the frequencies already won in the 700 MHz auction 2018, this will make it possible to commence the nationwide rollout of 5G, as well a significant upgrade of the existing 4G network.
The rollout will be conducted through Tele2’s and Telenor’s joint company Net4Mobility.
The two companies have also finalized their vendor procurement and chosen Ericsson and Nokia as partners for the rollout of their joint nationwide 5G radio access network.
The new 5G network will increase speed and coverage while lowering latency for both consumers and businesses.
