STOCKHOLM -- Ericsson said Friday it is providing Estonia's mobile operator EMT with the technology needed for third-generation mobile connectivity.
The Swedish telecommunications group said that EMT's third-generation network launched Friday covers the capital of the country, Tallinn, and will gradually expand over Estonia.
In a news release, Ericsson said that the network will allow users to watch television and listen to the radio as well as make calls through their handsets.
Valdo Kalm, chief executive of EMT, stated that "launching 3G ... is a perfect opportunity for EMT to increase data revenues. We see it as the logical next step in the evolution of mobile services, and we are confident we can take that step together with Ericsson."
