NetCom will not sell ist Swedish GSM network

NetCom will not sell its Swedish GSM network NetCom has no plans to sell its Swedish GSM-infrastructure. The information in Svenska Dagbladet today are not correct. Our MVNO-license, mobile virtual network operator, for GSM in Denmark was announced yesterday. Svenska Dagbladet has interpreted this as a statement that our Swedish GSM net is for sale. That is not correct. It is not necessary to own your own telecom infrastructure in every individual country. This has to be judged from case to case. The amount of customers we have in each country is an important factor as well as general market conditions, capacity and the price offered to NetCom for access to such infrastructure. Our aim is to keep the price low for the customers, says Lars-Johan Jarnheimer, NetCom CEO, in a statement.
