The World’s first and largest commercial 4G service launched by TeliaSonera and Ericsson

World’s first and largest commercial 4G service launched by TeliaSonera and Ericsson in Stockholm

·         Commercial launch ahead of original plan, largest deployment to date
·         Speeds make it possible to send and receive HD video
TeliaSonera’s mobile broadband commercial network in
Stockholm is now the fastest and largest in the world. Carl-Henric
Svanberg, President and CEO of Ericsson is excited about
this historical moment. "The new era of mobile broadband has just begun
today. With LTE, so-called 4G, your mobile broadband experience is
moving to unequalled levels. The LTE speed gives you an absolutely
effortless feeling of broadband access."
LTE, the next generation mobile communication
technology, is designed for transferring huge amounts of data in a most
cost and energy efficient way, optimizing use of frequency band and
realizing fiber-like access speed over the air. With decreased latency,
consumers can now enjoy whatever service is available online: HD video,
network games, you name it – effortlessly on the move.
Kenneth Karlberg, President and Head of Mobility
Services, TeliaSonera says: "We are very proud to be the first operator
in the world to offer our customers 4G services. Thanks to the
successful cooperation with Ericsson we can offer 4G to our customers
in Stockholm earlier than originally planned."
Downtown Stockholm is covered with the Ericsson LTE
network, making it the largest LTE deployment to date. TeliaSonera’s
customers are the first to have access to the LTE service by
commercially available Samsung LTE dongles.
Ericsson has completed commercialization of its LTE
products and larger production is ready for further deployment.
Interoperability is tested thoroughly with many different devices in
different operators’ networks.
