NOKIA: Nokia and Energia Communications sign distributor agreement for G.fast fixed ultra-broadband access technology in Japan

* Partnership has grown from a successful commercial G.fast deployment to a
reseller model for next generation ultra-broadband access in the country

Tokyo, Japan - Nokia has signed a distributor agreement with Energia
Communications (EneCom) to sell its G.fast fixed ultra-broadband access
technology in Japan. EneCom, Nokia's first customer for next-generation
broadband access technology in the country, will now become the reseller for
the fixed access technology, making it available nationwide across Japan.

G.fast is a technology that delivers customers fiber-like speeds over copper
cable over short distances, such as, for instance, in apartment buildings
with no fiber connections. The new service in EneCom's portfolio will enable
the company to expand its business and interests in the utility service
provider space by offering a fast, easy and economical way to replace
traditional VDSL2 technology and offer subscribers a choice of higher speed
access packages.

Satoshi Kumagai, CEO of Energia Communications, said
:
"Ten months ago we became Nokia's first G.fast technology customer in Japan
and one of the first customers worldwide. We have been very happy with the
service and have complete trust in Nokia's capability and strengths of its
fixed access business, which is why we decided to take the relationship
forward as a successful business partnership/reseller model."

Jae Won, head of Nokia in Japan, said:
"This strategic partnership with EneCom will increase G.fast deployments in
Japan, providing real benefits to subscribers who might otherwise be unable
to enjoy ultra-broadband speeds. Japan is a very important market to us, and
we look forward to a successful venture that will boost local economies."
