NEW YORK and STOCKHOLM -- Tele2 AB ("Tele2", "the Group") (Nasdaq Stock Market: TLTOA and TLTOB and Stockholmsbörsen: TEL2A and TEL2B), the leading alternative pan-European telecommunications company, today announced that it has signed an MVNO agreement with Radiolinja Origo, the number two GSM operator in Finland, with a market share of 30%.

This agreement, which follows Tele2’s takeover of Finnish 3G Suomen 3G Oy in May, will enable Tele2 to offer GSM mobile services in addition to the fixed line telephony and Internet services it currently offers in Finland.

Lars-Johan Jarnheimer, CEO of Tele2 commented: "I am delighted that we have struck this deal with Radiolinja Origo as it will enable us to increase our service offering to our customers and to grow our subscriber base in Finland without having to build our own infrastructure."
