TeliaSonera, Elisa, DNA get Finnish 4G broadband licences

24 ноября 2009

The Finnish government said Monday it had auctioned off four permits to build fourth generation, or 4G, mobile telephony and broadband networks, bringing in EUR3.8 million to state coffers.

Swedish-Finnish telecom operator TeliaSonera AB and Finland's Elisa Oyj and DNA Oy were granted permits to build Long Term Evolution networks. Pirkanmaan Verkko of Finland won a permit to build a 4G network using the alternative 4G standard called Wimax.

The auction was the first radio spectrum auction in Finland.

Minister of Communications Suvi Linden said in a statement the Ministry would "assess the results of the trial auction and the impact it will have in future."

The Finnish government plans to offer high-speed broadband connections with a speed of at least 100 megabytes a second to nearly all Finns by the end of 2015. The first step is to secure broadband of at least one megabyte a second by July 2010.

Juhapekka Ristola, director of the Communications Networks Unit at the Ministry of Transport and Communications, told AFP the fourth generation wireless networks played a role in that plan as they would speed up the exchange of information with mobile phones and laptops
