TeliaSonera Sweden enters into new Hotspot cooperation

TeliaSonera Sweden has signed a roaming agreement for public Wireless-
LAN access with Swisscom. Swisscom Eurospot and Swisscom Mobile offer Wi-
Fi(TM) hotspots at more than 700 locations in Switzerland, Germany, the
Netherlands and Belgium. Subscribers to Telia HomeRun, Europe's leading
hotspot service, are now provided coverage in most major European
countries.

With the new agreements, all customers with Telia HomeRun subscriptions
will now gain access to mobile broadband connections at more than 1,700
locations in Europe and at 450 sites in Sweden. TeliaSonera also has
roaming agreements for W-LAN services with other operators, such as
British Telecom, the leading operator in the U.K., and Metronet of
Austria.

"This type of cooperation is very important because our HomeRun
customers will be able to use mobile broadband services at a larger
number of locations in other countries, which increases the value of our
service considerably," says Erik Heilborn, head of the Business Segment
at TeliaSonera Sweden.

In a roaming contract, two operators agree that their customers are
allowed access to each other's network. As of today's agreement with
Swisscom, TeliaSonera Sweden now has roaming agreements for W-LAN with
six operators in Europe. TeliaSonera Sweden's HomeRun customers have
access to mobile broadband hotspots in more than 2,150 sites today.

With the HomeRun service, business travellers and other people wanting
to surf wireless with mobile broadband access can connect to the
Internet or their own corporate intranet while they travel. The HomeRun
service is available in selected locations at airports, hotels,
conference centres, sports facilities, roadside restaurants, cafés and
workplaces.

Swisscom is Switzerland's leading telecom operator with more than 3.5
million mobile customers. Swisscom Eurospot, a Swisscom subsidiary,
offers mobile broadband connections in Germany, the Netherlands, the
U.K. and Belgium, among other countries.
