Tele2 launches femtocell fixed telephony and broadband service

14 Apr 2010

Tele2 Sweden has launched a fixed line substitution service offering home telephone and internet access services via its cellular network and femtocell devices. ‘Tele2 Hemtelefoni via mobilnatet’ gives the user a fixed telephone number (or alternatively, allows them to use an existing PSTN number) and usage of a femtocell box with internal antenna giving three times the signal strength of average cellular reception in the home, according to the company’s website. Normal home phones can be used with the service. Availability is within Tele2’s 2G cellular footprint for voice telephony, and within its 3G coverage area for internet access.
