Nokia wins Swedish 5G deal

19 May 2021

Swedish network sharing firm Net4Mobility, which is a joint venture between Tele2 and Telenor, has contracted Nokia to carry out a 5G network expansion. Under the five-year deal Nokia will deploy its AirScale platform across ‘significant areas of Sweden’. According to the partners, the deal will ‘improve legacy 4G performance while increasing capacity, with 5G services introduced at the majority of sites within awarded areas’. Net4Mobility will also take advantage of the 3.5GHz spectrum band, ideal for dense urban coverage. Nokia says it will replace the legacy 4G network from a previous vendor and it is also expected that a significant number of new sites will be added every year.
