Telia Sweden rejects idea of dedicated emergency services mobile network

Friday 15 September 2017 | 12:35 CET | News
Telia said it has submitted its response to a Justice Department document on common security, which had included a proposal to commission state broadcasting company Teracom to establish and operate a new, separate mobile network for the emergency services. The idea was for Teracom, highway authority Trafikverket and the Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) to manage the grid. Telia said the document has serious shortcomings, and that the existing, commercial networks would better serve the blue light agencies, and give tighter state control.
