Telia in Denmark, has, through TT-Netvaerket, secured the 800 MHz-frequency for 2 X10 MHz for DKK 111 million, to further roll-out 4G network in Denmark. This marks an important step in creating Denmark´s most extensive mobile broadband network.
”I am very happy that we have been able to acquire this spectrum as it will equip us to continue roll out 4G quickly in Denmark. In doing so we will continue to provide Denmark´s best mobile network and thereby the best customer experience for users of smartphone, tablets and mobile broadband”, says Håkan Dahlström, President of business area Mobility services, TeliaSonera.
4G was launched in Denmark, December 2010 in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg and Odense, covering 5% of the population. Since then, due to extensive rollout of 4G, at the end of 2011, 75% of the population in those cities can enjoy the benefits of the vast broadband network. Today, TT-Netvaerket has 4G on the 2600 and 1800 MHz frequencies. Now, with access to the 800 MHz frequency TT-Netvaerket can build 4G networks in more sparsely populated areas.
TT-Netvaerket is a joint venture between Telia and Telenor in Denmark, and operates both companies’ mobile infrastructures.
