Broadband provider TeliaSonera has launched the world's first commercial 4G service, it has announced.

The firm, which supplies telecommunication services to customers in Nordic and Baltic countries, has made long-term evolution (LTE) broadband available in two major European capitals.

Web users in Oslo, Norway, and Stockholm, Sweden, will be able to benefit from high transmission speeds and capacity on their laptops through the new service, TeliaSonera said.

The internet service provider added that 4G broadband will "open up new possibilities" such as advanced gaming and web TV broadcasting to customers.

Commenting on the service launch, TeliaSonera's President and Head of Mobility Services Kenneth Karlberg said he was "very proud" of the achievement.

He added: "The use of mobile broadband in the Nordic countries is exploding and customers need higher speeds and capacity. This is why we have launched 4G services in both Stockholm and Oslo."

Last week, UK broadband provider O2 announced it had been trialling LTE broadband technology in Slough, in conjunction with Huawei.
