Telia's fastest broadband now available in all Swedish municipalities

Telia's fastest broadband now available in all Swedish municipalities

As of July 15 this year, households in all 290 municipalities in Sweden
will have access to Telia's fastest broadband connection - Telia
Broadband 8000. This means that 71 percent of all Swedish households can
have broadband speeds up to 8 Mbit/s. No other operator in Europe can
offer such extensive broadband penetration with such high speeds today.

Telia is continuing to build out its broadband network and approximately
85 percent of the households in Sweden have access to broadband today
through Telia. The fastest service, Telia Broadband 8000, can be offered
to customers living within a 3.5 km link distance to a telecom switching
centre.

Telia Broadband 8000 has speeds up to 8000 Kbit/s downstream and up to
800 Kbit/s upstream. With the 8000 service, a 5 Mb data file can be
theoretically downloaded in about 5 seconds. Downloading the same file
with a dial-up modem (56 Kbit/s) would take about 12 minutes.

The monthly fee for Telia broadband 8000 is SEK 449. Subscribers also
pay a one-time charge of SEK 695 (excluding Ethernet modem).

Telia currently offers the following broadband subscriptions to
consumers: Telia Broadband 250 (up to 250 Kbit/s), Telia Broadband 500
(up to 500 Kbit/s), Telia Broadband 2000 (up 2000 Kbit/s) and Telia
Broadband 8000 (up to 8000 Kbit/s).
