Samsung launches 4G LTE dongle

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the leading mobile phone and equipment provider, has announced the commercial availability of its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) dongle in Sweden and Norway. From yesterday, TeliaSonera begins offering commercial Samsung LTE dongles (Model Name: GT-B3710) for customers in Stockholm, Sweden and in Oslo, Norway. The introduction of the commercial dongle follows the announcement in October about TeliaSonera’s selection of Samsung as its 4G device provider.

Customers in Sweden and Norway can now enjoy maximum download speeds of 100 Mbps in 4G, which is ten times faster than the speed of the current ‘Turbo 3G’ service. TeliaSonera’s LTE service is the world’s first commercialization and will open up new possibilities for customers to enjoy the benefits of high-speed data service on their laptops, such as advanced web TV broadcasting, online gaming and web conferencing.
