Alands Telcommunications (Alcom), which provides mobile services on Finland’s Aland Islands, has been granted a licence allowing it to provide connectivity using 450MHz spectrum. Confirming the development via a press release, Alcom has announced a cooperation deal with fellow Finnish provider Ukkoverkot (Ukko Networks) – which also utilises the 450MHz band to provide mobile broadband services – under which it will act as an authorised reseller of the latter’s services on the islands.
