Swefour

3’s application for GSM spectrum approved

TeleGeography notes that Swedish regulator PTS has issued a decision approving a joint application from the country’s existing GSM mobile operators – TeliaSonera, Tele2, Telenor and Swefour – and currently 3G-only provider 3 Sweden for new allocations of frequencies in the 900MHz band.

Sweden investigates LTE spectrum “cartel”

The Swedish Competition Authority (Konkurrensverket) has launched an investigation into whether the LTE spectrum agreement forged by Sweden’s five main mobile operators is anti-competitive. The investigation relates to a deal struck between TeliaSonera, Telenor, Tele2, Swefour and 3 Sweden in November last year to share Sweden’s 900Mhz bandwidth in a so-called “frequency pact.”
