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. ®
