The Norwegians can Roam Like Home in the Nordics and Baltics
From March 1, Norwegian customers can surf, call and send messages in the Nordics and Baltics for the same price as at home.
- We promised an exciting new year as we changed the name from Netcom to Telia. Now we are launching Roam like Home as the first proof that our customers will benefit from our international strength, says Abraham Foss, Telia Norge.
Telia's existing and new private and business customers will be able to surf, call and send messages when they travel to Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania for the same price as when they are in Norway.
8 of 10 Norwegian surf less abroad due to roaming fees
Today most Norwegians have smartphones and want to live their digital lives when they travel, without worrying about the bills when they come home. Telia's brand new travel survey for 2016, performed with YouGov, shows that 8 out of 10 Norwegians limits their data use when travelling abroad due to roaming fees.
- Digitalization does not stop at country borders – it has no borders. Our ambition is that all Telia customers will be able to use our products and services in the same way as at home, regardless of where they travel in the world. With one price for our customers in the Nordics and Baltics, our customers can live their digital lives also when they are travelling abroad, says Karl Fredrik Lund, Manager for Telia's consumer.
The Nordics and Baltics are attractive destinations for Norwegians
Telia's customers are already surfing on the fastest and most covering 4G-net. Now they also want to roam and surf without worrying about high fees in the Nordics and Baltics.
- We are convinced that this will mean a lot for our customers. The countries where we now offer Roam like Home are among the most popular destinations among the Norwegians, travelling in business as well as for pleasure, Foss concludes.
There will be no roaming fees for Norwegian customers using their mobiles in the following countries: Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. (Rome like Home-countries)
The charge for calls, sms/mms and data in the Nordics and Baltics will be the same as in Norway, according to the customer's subscription.
This involves received calls, local calls, calls to Norway, sent and received sms/mms and surfing. It also applies to calls (up to 1000 minutes) between the Rome like Home-countries (Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania).
This is not applicable for outgoing international calls from Norway to non Roam like Home-countries
The terms for business customers vary
