Flextronics Network Services (NasdaqNM:FLEX) and TeliaSonera AB announced an agreement to expand the scope of their relationship. Under the terms of the five-year deal, Flextronics Network Services will become the main supplier of onsite installation and maintenance services for TeliaSoneras' fixed network customers.

The new agreement expands their partnership, both geographically and by volume.
"By expanding our partnership with Flextronics Network Services, TeliaSonera customers benefit from superior networking quality and efficiency," says Ove Alm, Sr Vice President, TeliaSonera Sweden. ''This deal ensures that the TeliasSonera brand is represented by competent and customer-focused people," he added.
