10 Oct 2019

Nokia has announced a deal with Telia Company under which it will bring its 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) solution to customers of the latter’s Finnish subsidiary. According to the vendor, its FastMile 5G gateway will allow Telia Finland to unlock the full potential of its 5G mobile network and quickly extend new ultra-broadband services to residences countrywide. Telia Finland customers that subscribe to the operator’s enhanced next-gen service can reportedly already pick up a Nokia FastMile 5G gateway in select stores with a view to gaining ‘immediate access to gigabit peak speeds in their home’. Nokia’s FastMile 5G gateway forms part of Telia Finland’s 5G device and subscription launch in Finland and is currently available to customers in Helsinki, Vantaa and Oulu, with plans to expand to ‘other major cities’ in future.

Janne Koistinen, 5G Program Manager for Telia Finland, said: ‘We want customers to enjoy the benefits of 5G regardless of where they are, and Nokia is an important partner helping us achieve this. With Fixed Wireless Access solutions like Nokia’s Fastmile 5G Gateway, our customer will be able to quickly leverage our end-to-end 5G network and enhanced services to support all of their ultra-broadband needs in the home.’
