UK Regulatory Announcement
TeliaSonera (OSE:TEL)(STO:TLSN)(HEX:TLS1V)(LSE:TEE)(Nasdaq:TLSN) has won
frequencies in the 800 MHz band in the beauty contest in Estonia arranged by
the Estonian Technical Surveillance Authority.
The 800 MHz frequencies will enable a faster roll-out of 4G services in
Estonian rural areas. With the new frequencies TeliaSonera will roll-out 4G to
cover 95% of Estonian territory in the middle of June, 2013.
4G enables a better user experience than other mobile data technologies due to
its faster connection speeds and low latency.

combination in Estonia. In the spectrum beauty contest TeliaSonera won 2 x 10
MHz frequencies in the 800 MHz band.
