TeliaSonera Finland announces the number of mobile customers in the
At the end of the third quarter of 2003, TeliaSonera Finland's mobile
customers numbered 2,441,000. In the preceding quarter, the number of
mobile customers was 2,471,000 in Finland. Customer churn was 21.8
percent, while in the preceding quarter it was 10.2 percent.
TeliaSonera Finland believes that the change is due to the large number
of Free Air-time and tie-in offers in the mobile market in Finland
following the introduction of mobile number portability as of July 25.
By publishing the mobile customer figures for the end of September
before the Group's interim results, TeliaSonera Finland wants to give
the market the correct picture of the situation as Numpac Oy announces
the total of mobile telephone numbers transferred at the beginning of
October. Numpac Oy is a company founded by TeliaSonera Finland Oyj,
Radiolinja and DNA, mobile operators operating in Finland, to administer
the number portability.
In response to the increased competition in the Finnish market
TeliaSonera Finland will launch a single rate mobile subscription called
Sonera One. All national calls costs 0,16 euro per minute and all
national SMS costs 0,12 euro per text message.
