Nordisk Mobiltelefon (Ice.net), a provider of mobile broadband services based on CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Rev A technology across Scandinavia, is working with Swedish technology provider Ericsson to continue expanding its 450MHz network coverage to more rural and remote areas including those not served by any other broadband or mobile services. The vendor contract includes network rollout and related support services in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Ice.net’s broadband services cover over 84% of the land area in these three countries, plus a range of 50km from the shoreline, serving consumers, businesses and public sector clients such as the Swedish Police Force and coastguards. Ice.net has been owned by US-based Access Industries since March 2009, following bankruptcy proceedings. Ericsson acquired the bulk of its worldwide CDMA network supply business (with 80 operator contracts) from Canada’s Nortel Networks in 2009, adding more than 2,000 employees.
