12 Nov 2007

Nokia Siemens Network (NSN) has announced that Telenor is upgrading its W-CDMA network in Norway with High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) technology. The initial upgrade will support up to downlink speeds of up to 3.6Mbps.

The deal is part of a pan-Nordic HSDPA contract, between Telenor Nordic and NSN, covering Norway, Sweden and Denmark. In addition to 3G expansion and the HSDPA software, NSN will provide care services such as software support services and hardware repair services. Deliveries started during the autumn with service launch scheduled for later this month.
