TeliaSonera launches the first 4G network in Scandinavia

For a lot of people in a lot of countries 3G is still the most amazing thing since.. well, sliced bread but now if you live in either the Sweden or Norwegian capital cities (Stockholm and Oslo) you can get yourself this new spangled 4G 100mbps network.

OK, I hear you ask when we are getting it but don’t get too excited because there aint even a phone on the market yet that can make use of this new network, although I’m more than positive that they will come very soon (maybe not at the top speed though). Although the handsets aren’t there yet they do offer the connection to laptop users through Ericsson in Sweden and Huawei in Norway.

So what’s next? Well Finland will have their 4G network up and running in Q1 of 2010, and O2 is already testing theirs in the UK, with the disappointment there being that they aint allowing me to test it for them.

Only time will tell and I for one can’t wait for the time when we can have a mobile network 10 times faster than that of HSPA enabled 3G networks of today.
