Euronews: Nov. 19

Telia Company , Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), and Nokia Networks are fit for purpose in today's roundup of Euro telecom news nuggets.

  • One year on from the launch of its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network, Scandinavian carrier TeliaSonera has revealed that its LTE users are gobbling up the data big-time, reports GigaOm. On average, the LTE crowd are using around three times as much as 3G subscribers, says the carrier, which puts them on a par with users of fixed-line broadband.

  • Apple's iAds mobile advertising platform is heading for the UK in the next few weeks, reports The Daily Telegraph. The platform works by delivering interactive and possibly quite irritating mobile ads inside iPhone apps.

  • The CFO of Siemens AG (NYSE: SI; Frankfurt: SIE) has the financial community in a tizz after saying that an IPO of Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN), its joint venture with Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK), is a possibility in the medium-term, reports Reuters. In other news, NSN has appointed a new head of its Global Services arm. Armando Almeida will take the helm in the new year, succeeding Ashish Chowdhary, who is moving to a new position covering Asia/Pacific and the Middle East.

  • Mature British rocker Peter Gabriel has put his weight behind the campaign for net neutrality, reports The Guardian. This could be seen as a valuable contribution from a much respected singer-songwriter: Others may argue it's using a "Sledgehammer" to crack a nut.
