Telecompany 3 set to launch 3G telephony in Denmark before year end  

International 3 group aims to be first on the streets in Denmark with 3G – ahead of TDC, Telia and Orange

Two years after entering the Danish market, the telecompany 3 says it is ready to offer the next generation of mobile telephony – in newspeak 3G – to almost 1.6 million Danes before the year is out. That would put 3 a step ahead of its three competitors who also hold 3G licences in Denmark, namely TDC, Telia and Orange. With 3G telephony, IT-hungry Danes will have high speed mobile access to news broadcasts, sports coverage, share prices, film clips, weather forecasts, video messages, MMS, SMS and a raft of entertainment services. Not forgetting that 3G terminals can also be used for making good old-fashioned telephone calls of course.


According to Jyllands-Posten which reports the news, US telecoms giant Motorola will initially supply 3G telephones to 3’s Danish market. In Sweden, where 3 has a sister company, the supplier will be Japan's NEC. 3 is owned by industrial group Hutchison Whampoa (60%) and the Swedish Wallenberg family’s investment company Investor AB (40%). Danish 3 is a member of the international 3 group which is already on air with 3G telephony in Sweden, UK, Italy, Austria, Australia and Hong Kong.
