Telia discontinues minute rate for fixed line telephony evenings and
weekends; also cuts SMS rate 43 percent

On January 12, 2004, Telia will launch new ways to price fixed line and
mobile telephony services. This is a unique solution for the Swedish
market - the minute rate for fixed line telephony will be completely
discontinued evenings and weekends. The SMS rate for mobile customers
will in the new offer be reduced from SEK 1.50 to SEK 0.85 per message.

The new price offers are intended to make it simpler for subscribers and
give them greater value for being a Telia customer.

"We know that customers are increasingly demanding simplicity. With
these new prices, our customers will have a better overview of their
costs. It is also important for Telia to introduce innovative thinking
and offer solutions that are beneficial for customers and allow
effective use of our fixed network," says Marie Ehrling, head of
TeliaSonera Sweden.

The offer to discontinue the minute rate for fixed telephony in the
Swedish market - Telia Fritid - is valid for all calls made from home
phones to another fixed telephone, regardless of the operator that the
called party uses, during evenings and weekends. This is a unique offer
in the Swedish market. In connection with the launch of Telia Fritid,
the minute rate for calls made from fixed phones to mobile phones will
also be reduced up to 26 percent, and the minute charge for
international calls will decrease slightly more than 20 percent. The
offer is packaged as follows: customers pay SEK 30 per month and can
call evenings and weekends without being charged the minute rate.

"Our investigations show that customers prefer to use an ordinary fixed
phone to make long phone calls and Telia Fritid is well suited to
satisfy this customer need. Today, as much as 85 percent of all
telephone traffic is over the fixed network today," says Marie Ehrling.

Telia is also launching a new type of subscription for mobile
subscribers in Sweden - Telia Mobil 25. The subscription includes 25
free minutes per month for calls made to other Telia customers. In Telia
Mobil 25, the price for calls to networks of other operators in the
daytime will be reduced from SEK 5.40/minute to SEK 3.90/minute, the
price for SMS is being reduced from SEK 1.50 to SEK 0.85 per message in
Telia's network and to SEK 1.25 for SMS messages sent to networks of
other operators.
