Tele2 has signed an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) agreement with TDC. This means that, as an MVNO lessee, the Danish operator has gained access to Tele2's GSM and 3G networks in Sweden. It is expected that the agreement will come into effect early in 2008 and have a validity term of five years.
- Competition is good both for consumers and for the growth and development of the industry we work in. Our agreement with TDC means that Swedish users of mobile telephony services are now offered a new alternative to choose from and that Tele2 will make increased profits on their current assets, says Niclas Palmstierna, CEO of Tele2 Sweden.
In the past, Tele2 has granted leases for its Swedish mobile network to Spring Mobil, Ventelo and Telenor and it is looking forward to opening up its network to more operators.
