Net Insight delivers to Tele2 media network build-out

The TV 4 network, currently connecting main and subsidiary studios in Stockholm with TV 4's local station in Göteborg, is expanded to also connect Köpenhamn, Malmö and Sundsvall. Tele2 also begins the build-out to new customers and recording sites with need for video transport services.

"This is a very positive sign. Tele2's launch of the service "Media HighSpeed" and venture to build a national media network is now showing results. More players, companies within media and entertainment industry, have seen the benefits, and TV 4's decision to connect more cities is a proof of our technology's strength, both in terms of quality and overall economy", says Tomas Duffy, CEO, Net Insight.

The order for equipment is the second purchase based on the earlier signed skeleton agreement between Tele2 and Net Insight.
