NetCom launches HSDPA

20 Apr 2007

TeliaSonera’s Norwegian wireless subsidiary NetCom has announced that it has launched an HSDPA upgrade. The biggest cities in Norway will have access to the new network in 2007, including Oslo, Trondheim, Bergen and Stavanger. Build-out of the so-called Turbo 3G network will continue in 2008 and 2009. In parallel with the launch of the new network, NetCom released several new services and price plans. ‘We [will] customise the mobile broadband offering to the needs of the different customer groups and offer several new subscription solutions. The products will be adapted both to big users in the business market and to customers who wish to have access to the internet wherever they are,’ said Hans Heggenhaugen, Product Manager for Mobile Broadband at NetCom. TeliaSonera already offers HSDPA in Sweden, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and plans a launch in Finland in the near future.
