Nokia Oy has signed a three-year deal worth some $40m to expand a digital mobile telephone network in St Petersburg, Russia, it said. The contract, with North-West GSM, includes providing the city with base stations and microwave radios and expanding the network management center. North-West GSM is co-owned by the Russian telecommunications companies in the St Petersburg area, plus Scandinavians Telia AB, Telenor A/S and Telecom Finland. Nokia has been the company’s sole supplier since 1994. The Groupe Speciale Mobile network was opened in December 1994 and currently has 16,000 subscribers. The new contract will enable the network to expand to 150,000 users, Nokia said.
