NPOV :Alabama Cooperative Extension System, written almost entirely by a news and public affairs employee at ACES, so needs some neutral eyes to give it a going-over to check for both neutrality, and layout/content inclusion, etc.

I tagged the main section as NPOV for phrases like this: "our extensive portfolio of telecommunication solutions and intellectual property offer a true business advantage". Wikipedia is not the place for true business advantages. Alpine 21:21, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
This article seems unbalanced,in that too much space is devoted to some topics (e.g. "Shareholder Changes") that are irrelevant and there are big gaps in time (e.g. from 1901 to 2001 in the "Industrial Expansion" section). Very little attention is paid to switching and transmission systems, which are the main parts of the telecom business, while there is too much detail about telephone instruments. In reality, for every dollar spent on handsets at least ten dollars are invested in the supporting infrastructure. The text needs some serious pruning. The comment, in " Market Development", that "Ericsson's presence and manufacturing facilities in Britain allowed it to get most of the contracts" does not ring true. There were, at least, two other major telephone system manufacturers in Britain from the early days, both American controlled; namely AT&E, of Liverpool, and Western Electric (later ST&C), of North London. <See www.britishtelephones.com/histauto.htm>. Siemens and Philips (through TMC) were also active in the UK. GEC and Plessey were major players after World War II. In the late 1960s, British Ericsson (which had been independent of LM Ericsson since the 1940s) was bought out by Plessey and amalgamated with AT&E and in 1989 Plessey Communications was joined with GEC's Telephone division, to form GPT. The circle was then closed, as GEC combined GPT with its own Marconi, allowed that operation to go bankrupt within a few years and then sold it all back to LM Ericsson. The "Further Development" section is too brief, as it covers the years from 1930 to 2000 in just two sentences. For example, Ericsson did a lot of development on crossbar systems - it's still not clear whether the Bell System or Ericsson really invented crossbar switches, in the late 1930s.. However it's certainly NOT correct to state that"Ericsson crossbar switching equipment is the main stay of many telephone administrations . . around the world. ". By the early 1990s most electromechanical systems had been replaced by digital, electronic, central offices and PBXs - so Ericsson lost market share. John Roger A. (talk) 18:21, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
Please, can you translate the economic indicators to euros or dollars because nobody (apart from the Swedes) knows what is the exchange of a SEK.--22.214.171.124 (talk) 01:36, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
I realize that this is an old suggestion, but it needs to be pointed out that this is a lousy idea. Exchange rates vary widely over time and unless one is certain what the SEK was worth in another currency, such as the USD, at the time of any specific deal and use that particular exchange rate for conversion, you are likely to end up with figures that are completely incorrect. As for the Euro, it didn't even exist for most of the history of this company, so that is not even possible. --Hegvald (talk) 14:39, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
This entire article sounds like an advertisement. It's just as difficult to find actual non-marketing information here as it was on Ericsson's website. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:37, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
