STOCKHOLM, Sweden, March 13 (UPI) -- Japanese mobile operator Emobile has hired Swedish telecom firm Ericsson to supply its new 3G network.

Ericsson did not reveal the value of the deal, though a spokesman said it was "very big," said Swedish newspaper The Local.

"We are now the biggest 3G supplier in Japan, the USA and Canada, which means enormous opportunities for us as the market continues to develop," said Managing Director Carl-Henric Svanberg during a telephone conference from Japan, where he was finalizing the agreement.
