The Economist – Ericsson and Nokia are now direct rivals. How do they compare?

A better approach would be to remember what made the European mobile industry strong in the first place, says Bengt Nordstrom of Northstream, a telecoms consultancy. When 2G (or GSM, as it was called back then) was introduced in the late 1980s, many European countries and operators signed up to a memorandum of understanding, agreeing […]

Dagens Industri – Ericssons konkurrent skruvar åt pengakranen

”5G kommer inte att skapa tillväxt på telekommarknaden. Operatörernas investeringar kommer att ligga kvar på ungefär samma nivå som i dag. Därför är Huaweis besked nog en anpassning till rådande marknadsläge med hård kostnadskontroll”, säger Bengt Nordström, grundare av konsultföretaget Northstream.
