Telia wants 700 MHz band freed up for mobile communications

Friday 1 November 2013 | 12:47 CET | News
Telia said the 700 MHz frequency band should not remain earmarked for terrestrial television beyond 2015. The government will shortly be making a decision on extending licences for TV services using the waveband. Telia said it is important to make the right decision, especially for rural areas, so that plans can start being made for use of the frequencies and for terrestrial TV development.
