Primetel and Telenor have signed an agreement for the Global LTE Roaming Exchange. This new partnership provides Primetel customers with industry leading 4G roaming coverage to ensure an enhanced user experience.

While travelling, roaming customers show an increased demand for services, be they international calls, multimedia content, downloading applications and accessing email or social media. The LTE Roaming Exchange provides cost efficient, quality of service and flawless customer experience for roamers. Through Telenor’s Diameter Routing Agent (DRA), Primetel will now be able to offer 270 global 4G networks, including the 13 Telenor operations worldwide.

“We are delighted to offer Primetel our service and help them take a market leader position. They will be a front runner in Cyprus to offer inbound LTE Roaming. The launch will provide improved call quality and benefits both Telenor’s and Primetel’s direct peering partners by enabling 4G roaming in each other’s networks”, says Ronny Johnsen, CMO of Global Wholesale, the international wholesale unit of Telenor. “With this improved position, Primetel can easily offer new value added services to their customers by quickly adapting to changing market situations”, adds Ronny Johnsen.

“We have a long-standing and important relationship with Telenor, and we are very satisfied with their ability to understand our needs and complex challenges in deploying LTE roaming. Through their extensive experience and ability for fast development of services, we are now able to offer high quality 4G roaming to our customers”, says Theodosiou, CCO of Primetel. “Telenor has been a pioneer with LTE Roaming, both globally and in many local markets. Their extensive global 4G coverage is of significant importance as it allows for quality roaming in both our networks.”
