In Europe, debate rages over whether to join the United States and those allies in excluding Huawei. The European Union should be worried about Huawei and other Chinese technology companies because of the risk they pose to the bloc's industry and security, the bloc's technology chief Andrus Ansip said in December. Ansip was speaking after the arrest in Canada of Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou in relation to a U.S. investigation into an alleged scheme to use the global banking system to evade U.S. sanctions against Iran.
Norway is considering whether to join other western nations in excluding China's Huawei Technologies from building part of the Nordic country's new 5G telecommunications infrastructure, its justice minister said on Wednesday. The Norwegian government is currently discussing measures to reduce potential vulnerabilities in its telecoms industry ahead of the upgrade. State-controlled operator Telenor, which has 173 million subscribers across eight countries in Europe and Asia, signed its first major contract with Huawei in 2009, a deal that helped pave way for the Chinese firm's global expansion.
Shares of Finnish telecommunications company Nokia NOKIA-FI have rallied nearly 30 percent in 2018, and that's largely thanks to two letters: 5G. The stock still trades well below its sky-high levels during the dotcom boom, when Nokia was the world's top mobile phone seller. The company's efforts have helped put Finland on the map in the worldwide race to develop and implement so-called fifth generation wireless technology.

Nordic telecoms operator Telia said on Wednesday it had sold its stake in Uzbekistan's Ucell for $215 million on a debt-free basis, as part of its strategy to exit its Eurasian businesses. Telia announced in 2015 that it would retreat from Central Asian markets and instead refocus on growing its core Nordic operations after being hit for years by investigations into alleged corruption linked to local partners and problems accessing cash in distant countries. After this deal, Telia has businesses in Kazakhstan and Moldova left to sell to complete its exit.

The introduction of fifth-generation (5G) mobile technology will be credit neutral for European telecoms operators, with no major increase in investment expected over the next five years as companies adopt a 'wait and see' strategy, says Moody's Investors Service in a recently published report. Moody's report, "Telecoms -- Europe: Limited 5G revenue growth puts major investment rise on hold over next five years," is available on www.moodys.com. The rating agency's report is an update to the markets and does not constitute a rating action.

Telia Company (TELIA.ST) expects reforms in Sweden to take a year longer than planned, the Nordic telecoms company warned on Friday, sending its shares lower despite beating quarterly profit forecasts and raising its outlook. "The real significant benefits are to come in 2020 rather than as expected in 2019," Chief Executive Johan Dennelind said regarding reforms in Sweden, a market which accounts for half of its core earnings and nearly half of its revenue.
Swedish mobile firm Tele2 AB said on Monday that the European Commission had closed an investigation into potential anti-competitive practices among market players and would not take any further action. In April last year, the Commission launched the investigation into whether mobile network operators in Sweden had abused their position to block competitors from entering the market. "Today, the European Commission has informed Tele2 that the investigation has been closed without any further action," Tele2 said in a statement.
Telia's plan to buy Bonnier Broadcasting could prompt the Swedish government to sell its 37 percent stake in the telecoms firm to limit state influence over local media, particularly if the centre-right bloc wins Sunday's general election. The $1 billion deal, announced in July, is politically sensitive because the government already controls Sweden's public service television network SVT, while Bonnier's TV4 is the Scandinavian country's biggest commercial channel. Apart from selling its stake, currently worth about 64 billion Swedish crowns ($7 billion), Stockholm could also look at breaking up Telia, the Nordic region's biggest telecoms company, to limit the state's role in the media.
Sweden's Telia Company announced a $1 billion deal to buy Bonnier Broadcasting on Friday, its second major acquisition in a week as the top Nordic telecoms operator looks to expand its media business. Bonnier Broadcasting, owned by a prominent Swedish family, includes brands such as Swedish TV4 and streaming service C More and Finnish MTV. Telia is focused on supplying a full range of mobile, fixed line and TV operations in its seven Nordic and Baltic markets after retreating from central Asia, a previous source of growth.
Telia AB Chief Executive Officer Johan Dennelind is making a major expansion by the Swedish telecom monopoly into content with a 9.2 billion kronor ($1 billion) agreement to buy Bonnier AB’s television operations, his second big purchase this week. The acquisition follows a $2.6 billion deal on Tuesday to buy TDC A/S’s business in Norway to take on the country’s largest operator, Telenor ASA, on its home turf. Closely held Bonnier AB owns TV channels in Sweden and Finland, and with the deal Telia is emulating U.S. and European peers who have added content to their traditional phone services to combat powerful digital rivals like Netflix Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. Like AT&T Inc.’s deal to buy Time Warner Inc. in the U.S., Telia becomes both a distributor and producer of content with the Bonnier acquisition.
Scandinavia's largest telecom operator, Telia (TELIA.ST), was close to sealing a deal on Thursday to acquire the broadcasting and streaming media business of Swedish publishing firm Bonnier AB, sources familiar with negotiations said. Telia has pushed for a deal valued below the 10-12 billion Swedish crown ($1.12-$1.35 billion) range that local media reported in May, one source told Reuters.

Swedish telecom operator Telia Company has agreed to buy TDC's Norwegian business in a $2.6 billion deal that adds broadband and TV to its mobile services in Norway and puts pressure on market leader Telenor. Telia's Norwegian purchase will give it a full range of mobile, fixed-line and TV operations in all of its seven Nordic and Baltic markets, although its business in Denmark remains too small to be sufficiently profitable. The acquisition by Telia, which has long said purchases of broadband and cable-TV assets in Norway were a priority, values the TDC business at 21 billion Norwegian crowns, or 12 times 2017 core earnings.
Norway's Competition Authority fined Telenor (TEL.OL) 788 million crowns (73.15 million pounds) on Thursday, saying the country's largest telecoms provider had abused its dominant market position. The case concerned the planned introduction of a third mobile phone network in Norway to compete with those of Telenor and Sweden's Telia Company (TELIA.ST), which the Norwegian company had resisted, the regulator said. From 2007, Network Norway and Tele2 jointly sought to build a third nationwide mobile phone network, and bought access for its customers to Telenor's network for the areas it had not yet developed.
Now that investors have stopped badgering Telia AB Chief Executive Officer Johan Dennelind about how his plan to exit Central Asian markets is progressing, he’s turning to an eyesore closer to home: Denmark.
Nordic and Baltic telecoms operator Telia Company (TELIA.ST) will return cash to shareholders as planned despite talks to buy Sweden's Bonnier Broadcasting, its finance chief said. Telia's exit from its previous growth engine in central Asia, which it began in 2015, has contributed to a strong balance sheet, raising expectations for generous shareholder payouts. "I feel very comfortable about our balance sheet and we very much nurse for dividend and buy-backs, which are not to be affected if this kind of transaction would happen," Telia Chief Financial Officer Christian Luiga told Reuters in an interview late on Tuesday.
