Mmm, the sweet smell of mobile data burning up the pipes in the morning. Gets us every time. Evidently, the same aroma does something to the brains of Ericsson and TeliaSonera, who have taken their January agreement
to the next level by introducing the planet's first commercial Long-Term Evolution (LTE
) site in Stockholm, Sweden. Mind you, we've seen lots
of trial runs
over the past year
and change, but this one's no test. Rather, this site will become part of a commercial network scheduled to go live in 2010, bringing wicked fast mobile transfers
to Stockholmers everywhere. Now, let's hope these American carriers get jealous, and fast.
