Telenor and Telia's joint Danish infrastructure company TT-Netværket has obtained a license to build a 4G network in the 800 MHz frequency band in Denmark.
In a statement, the two companies said the 800 MHz frequency is well suited to ensuring a broad 4G rollout because it gave 4G masts a much wider range.
TT-Netværket paid €15 million for the license and said it intends to increase the percentage of the population that receives 4G – the figure currently stands at 75 percent.
"The 800 MHz licence is a key element of fulfilling our ambition to create Denmark's best network in terms of both voice and data," said Jon Erik Haug, CEO of Telenor Danmark.
Telenor and Telia have also concluded an agreement to merge their 4G, 3G and 2G mobile networks.
The network share will begin “in a few months” with 4G.
Over in Serbia, another of Telenor’s markets, the Norway-based operator announced Ove Fredheim will take over the CEO role in September.
Incumbent Kjell-Morten Johnsen became head of Telenor's European operations and member of the Group Executive Management earlier this year.
"I am confident that with his knowledge about the region and the extensive experience from the telecom industry, Ove can strengthen and further develop Telenor's position in Serbia," said Johnsen.
Telenor Serbia is the country's largest mobile operator, with 43 percent market share and 3.1 million mobile subscriptions.
