3 Sweden to get 2G frequencies under new PTS proposals

5 Feb 2009

Swedish regulator the PTS is launching a public consultation on a draft decision for the allocation of GSM 900MHz frequencies. The proposal states that all existing GSM-900 licences will be renewed, but that in addition, all of the available spectrum space in the 900MHz band will be allocated, to allow 3G-only cellco Hi3G Access Sweden (3) to gain access to 2G spectrum for the first time. 3, a subsidiary of Hong Kong-based Hutchison Whampoa, currently uses third-party roaming to provide its users with full nationwide 2G/3G services. Current GSM-900 licences of TeliaSonera, Tele2, Telenor and Swefour expire at the end of 2010. The draft decision will be published on the PTS’s website next week.
