Unitech Wireless, the Indian mobile joint-venture between India’s Unitech and Norway’s Telenor, has secured a INR5,000 crore (US$1.03 billion) loan from the State Bank of India (SBI) in a bid to fund its network rollout, reports Economic Times.
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.”
After running trials within its own head office for the past few years, Norway’s Telenor says that it is now ready to launch a commercial Unified Communications (UC) service. A total of 30,000 Telenor employees currently use Unified Communications services.
