London – Tele2 AB, (Tele2), (NASDAQ OMX Stockholm: TEL2 A and TEL2 B) announces today that it has signed 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) roaming agreements with a number of international partners. The agreements will bring faster mobile broadband connections to Tele2 customers when travelling abroad.
Tele2 launches 4G LTE roaming on footprint and external markets. Tele2 customers in Sweden, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania will soon be able to reap the benefits of the advanced features that come with LTE roaming abroad. The agreements will bring Tele2 customers faster data speeds, a better surf experience and higher quality connections when using mobile services abroad.
Anders Olsson, Group CCO at Tele2 comments: “Our partnerships aim to offer our customers added value which is an important part of Tele2’s strategy. People are travelling in a completely different way today than in the past, which leads to higher demands on the telecom industry. Demands that we of course plan to live up to.”
The first external LTE roaming agreement has also been signed between Tele2 and FareasTone Telecommunications, which will bring higher quality and faster data speeds to Tele2 customers travelling to Taiwan.
