Telia, Telenor Denmark enter final stage of network sharing

Monday 19 May 2014 | 12:35 CET | News
Telia Denmark said its network sharing deal with Telenor Denmark will reach its final stage on the night of 19 May when their 2G grids in South Zealand are merged. Their 4G networks came together at the end of 2012, and their 3G grids in April this year. Heine Wieben Rasmussen, network specialist at Telia, said that one the merger is complete, the two operators can start thinking about how best to exploit each technology in response to customer use. For instance, LTE coverage could be prioritised in areas where customers use more internet capacity, he said.
