3 Scandinavia and Ericsson to launch Europe’s first 21 Mbps network in 2009
Ericsson announced today that it has partnered with 3 Scandinavia in order to launch what will be Europe’s first 21 Mbps mobile broadband network.
Reportedly, 3 Scandinavia and Ericsson are working together to upgrade the current HSPA networks that 3 owns in Sweden and Denmark. In consequence, select regions from the two countries will benefit from the new and ultra-speedy network starting the first half of 2009.
3 was also the first carrier to launch a Turbo 3G network in the Nordic countries, and now the company wants to be the first to raise the Mbps bar to 21.
Needless to say, the upcoming 21 Mbps network will allow 3 Scandinavia’s subscribers to transfer data and browse the Web at blazing speeds – provided that they have a good handset, of course.
