Swedish operators Tele2 and Telenor entered into an agreement to build a common nationwide network with 5G technology. They aim to offer the first customers access to 5G with full functionality as early as 2020. The companies already share 2G and 4G/LTE networks via their joint company Net4Mobility. Tele2 and Telenor established Net4Mobility in 2009 to jointly build and operate a national 4G/LTE network.
