Tango plans commercial launch of 3G services in Luxembourg during the second quarter of 2003 and in Liechstenstein later in 2003. Deliveries to the operator have already started, and the roll-out is well advanced.

"The build out of the UMTS network in 2003 is an important step for Tango in Luxembourg," commented Lars-Johan Jarnheimer, CEO of Tele2. "Tango is now the largest provider of mobile services in the country and the 3G environment will bring new opportunities for Tango."

Ericsson has been the main supplier for Tele2/Tango's fixed and mobile networks in Luxembourg. For Ericsson, this contract is another confirmation that Ericsson holds the world leading position in 3G.

"This is another important win for Ericsson," says Jef Keustermans, president of Ericsson in the Benelux. "We once more underline our leadership in 3G. We are very happy we can take our excellent relationship with Tango into the next phase of mobile communications."
