Tele2 in talks with Access for Norway spectrum - report

Thursday 6 February 2014 | 15:56 CET | News
Tele2 is in talks with Access Industries to gain access to more mobile spectrum in Norway, four people familiar with the matter told Reuters. Tele2 lost out to Access in the spectrum auction in December, leaving it without the frequencies needed to expand its nework. Access Industries, a holding company owned by Ukrainian-American billionaire Len Blavatnik, won airwaves in the 800, 900 and 1800 MHz bands. The two companies are now in talks about options including Access selling its spectrum to Tele2, Access buying Tele2's Norway operation, or some type of licensing of the spectrum to Tele2.
