Finland threatens to scrap Tele2 3G licence
Oh no, they can't take that away from me
Tele2 could lose its 3G licence for Finland, because of delays in building its network.
Finland's Ministry of Transport and Communications this week told Suomen 3G, the Tele 2 owned-operator, that it had until 7 January to explain its tardiness.
"If the clarification is not satisfactory, the company's license could be canceled," it said in a statement, Reuters reports. "A license does not mean that a company just has the right the build a (3G) network, but that the company also has an obligation to build it," Leena Luhtanen, minister of communications, said.
Finland's 3G licencees are obliged to build a network covering 35 per cent of the country's population. ®
