This agreement is a pan-European pricing framework and is the common base for all subsidiaries within the mmO2 group - i.e. O2 Germany, O2 United Kingdom, O2 Ireland, Manx Telecom (Isle of Man) and O2 Airwave (UK) - to enter local agreements and place orders.

"This agreement reduces the efforts for the local companies to negotiate everything from scratch. By this we increase efficiency in line with the mmO2 motto 'Do it once'", says Karl-Wilhelm Rohrsen, Chief Technical Officer of O2 Germany.

"For Ericsson this agreement once again shows that we are regarded as a reliable partner with an international presence and first class products. It is a further step in strengthening our business relationship with mmO2," says Sivert Bergman, Vice President & General Manager Transport and Transmission.
