Stockholm – To secure great connectivity for roaming customers, Tele2 AB (“Tele2”) (Nasdaq Stockholm: TEL2 A and TEL2 B) has signed an international signaling agreement with Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier. Starting mid-December, the new international signaling services will apply to all customers within Tele2’s footprint.
“By utilizing Deutsche Telekom’s solution for international signaling, we will increase quality for our roaming customers and complement our networks with a solid and stable solution”, says Thomas Björklund, EVP Mobile Technology at Tele2.
Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier’s international solution will add another layer of redundancy to Tele2’s networks and increase the quality and accessibility for all Tele2 customers whenever they use connectivity services abroad. As such, this is another step for Tele2 to improve the roaming experience for both consumers and businesses.
“We are honored that Tele2 trusts our solution and joined our growing list of partners. It is an important proof point of our roaming enablement strategy.
