TeliaSonera lowers Nordic and Baltic roaming prices - price reduction and daily cost control for mobile surfing travellers starting today

By launching a new way of pricing mobile data abroad TeliaSonera wants to help their customerscontinue their digital life outside home country borders. TeliaSonera lowers data roaming prices forcustomers in the Nordic and Baltic countries by approximately 90 percent.

“It is important to give our customers freedom to use their mobile phone and laptop abroad since we know it’s essential that they can keep in touch with colleagues, clients, friends and family when travelling. We seek to pioneer the business all the time, and we have done that today for our customers travelling in the Nordic and Baltic countries,” says Håkan Dahlström, President business area Mobility Services, TeliaSonera.


The use of mobile data doubles every year, but customers are still uncertain about prices and what their digital life will cost them when leaving their home country. With the new pricing structure and cost control, TeliaSonera wants to support customers in doing business, keeping in touch with their family and networking also when travelling abroad.


“This is a great example of how TeliaSonera further strengthens the link between our local operators within the company. This price reduction is made possible by fully utilizing TeliaSonera’s Nordic and Baltic presence,“says Håkan Dahlström.


The new lower prices and the cost control function automatically apply to all customers during travel in the Nordic and Baltic countries, without customers needing to make any specific action. With the new prices, a customer surfing on a mobile phone pays SEK 29 for 20 MB per day. All customers have total control over costs since a text message is sent by TeliaSonera to the customer if the customer should need to buy more data to stay online.


Actual pricing will differ slightly in respective markets. The detailed offer is available through local operator web sites.
