TeliaSonera´s Estonian operations EMT and Elion take the name Telia

On January 20, a new page is written in TeliaSonera history, as the previously merged EMT and Elion take the name Telia. From the same date, no roaming fees will be added for Estonian customers travelling in the Baltics & Nordics.

In 2014, the two TeliaSonera operations in Estonia, Elion and EMT, merged to bring the strengths of both teams together and offer the customers combined mobile, broadband and IT services. Now, as the companies´ critical processes also have been merged, the time is right to introduce the new common name; Telia.

 - Telia in Estonia is founded on the joint knowledge and experience of two teams. This synergy is strengthened by global know-how of the TeliaSonera group. Together we have the technological competence, unique customer insights and investment capacity to carry out our vision of the New Generation Telco, says Dan Strömberg, CEO of Telia Estonia.

No roaming fees in the Baltics and Nordics

The new brand also brings new offers. From January 20, the Telia customers can surf and use mobile data services in the Baltics and Nordics* with domestic rates and terms. No roaming fees will be added. (*Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.)

A new offer is the technology-independent internet connection “HomeInternet”, a limitless data plan based on 4G technology, designed for locations without access to cable connection. HomeInternet customers can also subscribe to a TV service that is based on smart-TV.

For business customers, Telia offers flexible and cost effective IT infrastructure, where the customers can pay for only what they use.

- For us, our customers and their needs come first. With these new solutions, we want to free our customers from constraints, and make their lives easier and more convenient, Dan Strömberg added.
