Sonera wins open fibre contract from Cap-Net Finland

Monday 12 December 2016 | 13:28 CET | News
Telia Company's Finnish arm, Sonera, said it has signed an agreement with digital signage and fibre services company Cap-Net Finland, to build a fibre grid in the north of Karelia, using Sonera's open access operating model. Among other things, Cap-Net Finland develops broadband and fibre projects with local and city councils in North Karelia. Cap-Net CEO Ari Hakulinen said it picked Sonera because of its open access model, which means uses can select their own service provider, and because Sonera's core network is the most comprehensive one in Finland.
