The mobile phone network 3 has signed an agreement with Telia to allow its customers to use Telia’s network in areas that 3’s network doesn’t cover, superseding the company’s current roaming agreement with TDC, which does not include 3G and 4G data.

Heavy smartphone users
Morten Christiansen, the head of 3, emphasised the importance of access to mobile internet for 3’s customers.

“Our customers are heavy users of their smartphones, and this is regardless of where in the country they are,” he said.

“It is therefore important for us to ensure that in the future our customers also have full access to mobile data in outlying areas. At the same time we have reached an agreement that both we and Telia are happy with.”

Telia: makes good business sense
According to Morten Bentzen, the head of Telia, the agreement makes good business sense for his company.

“I am both happy and proud to announce the agreement with 3. It is probably the biggest wholesale agreement in Denmark, and it strengthens our already strong position in the market,” he said.

“By virtue of its size, the agreement is good for business and our income, and at the same time it is testimony to the high quality of our network.”
