Telia launches new Telia Refill pricing plan for young people

Today, Telia is presenting a new pricing plan with lower calling rates
for the Telia Refill prepaid card, as well as a new offering for young
people with a lower price for SMS messages. In the new pricing plan, for
example, the call rate on weekdays has been reduced approximately 18
percent from SEK 6.00 to SEK 4.90 between 8.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m.

In the new pricing plan, named Refill Bas, call rates will be lower for
all Telia prepaid card customers who want to join the plan. In addition,
there are two new features for young people (up to the age of 25) who
choose Refill Bas: a lower SMS price and SEK 200 in calling time when
they register their Refill prepaid card.

"Today, we have more than 1.8 million Refill customers and prepaid cards
are the most popular alternative among young people. With the new
pricing plan, we are giving our prepaid card customers the opportunity
to call at a much lower price and we are making Refill even more
attractive to young people with extra low rates for SMS," says Indra
Åsander, head of the Consumer Segment at TeliaSonera Sweden.

The following are the call rates for Refill Bas and Refill Original
(includes 25% Swedish V.A.T.):
