Hi3G is awarded a UMTS licence in Denmark

The Danish Government today announced that Hi3G Denmark ApS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hi3G Access AB, has been awarded one of the four licences to offer UMTS services in Denmark. This will enable Hi3G to provide the Danish population with world-leading mobile multi media services.

To take a leading position on the market, Hi3G will be a driving force in the development of mobile broadband services. Hi3G's strategy is to provide the most innovative and attractive services over its network in Sweden and Denmark.

"Hi3G will bring a strong 3G offering to the Danish market. We are focused only on the new technology and are convinced that the third generation mobile technology will influence a basic change in how we communicate. By combining advanced data services with mobility 3G creates a new medium, to be used for work and leisure", says Chris Bannister, Hi3G's CEO.

Hi3G's customer offering in Sweden and Denmark will benefit from knowledge sharing and cooperation within the network of Hutchison Whampoa companies that holds 3G licences in Australia, Austria, Italy and the UK.
