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
