Song Networks expands to mobile operator business in Finland

Song Networks expands to mobile operator business in Finland Song Networks Holding AB (Stockholmsbörsen: SONW) announces today that the Finnish subsidiary expands to mobile operator business. Song Networks in Finland brings to market its mobile services, which complement especially corporate data and voice solutions. The customers will get swift access to their companies' own information network and to Internet as well as to wireless voice services via mobile devices. Song Networks is a leading Nordic provider for corporate and public sector of fixed data and voice solutions. Now Song Networks in Finland expands its supply with mobile services. "The wireless services are still fairly separated from the other data and voice communications in companies. We believe that with easy-to-use solutions that combines both data and voice, and fixed and wireless our customers can improve their efficiency as well as create new business", says Ari-Jussi Knaapila, Vice Executive President, Song Networks Holding AB. As part of its mobile services, Song Networks Oy has signed an agreement with Oy Radiolinja Ab's network operator Radiolinja Origo Oy, part of the Elisa Group, for the use of their mobile network integrated with Song Networks' multi service network. "At the moment, there are about 4.4 million mobile subscriptions in Finland. Our estimation is that somewhat more than 50 percent of them are in corporate and public sector use. Safe and user-friendly access from these devices to the company's calendar, e-mail and operative systems are still missing. As the mobile communication is getting faster and turning to IP-based solutions, Song mobile services bring improvement to this customer need", says Jouko Viitanen, Business Area Manager, Song Networks Oy. "We provide high-quality services based on Elisa Mobile's GSM and GPRS networks. Through our co-operation Song is able to provide their corporate customer segment a full service repertoire with mobile services, says Kari Partanen, Director, Oy Radiolinja Ab.
