TeliaSonera wins contracts worth SEK 2 billion

During the month of June TeliaSonera sold communication solutions to
large corporate customers and public authorities in Sweden that had a
combined value of more than SEK 2.0 billion. Broadband-based
communications systems and mobile workplaces are being increasingly
needed today in large organisations - this is a trend that is becoming
more and more apparent.

Only four of the agreements in June had an order value of more than SEK
100 million, indicating a high volume of business with large corporate
customers. In addition, most of the agreements also run over a period of
several years, which means that the total value of the contracts cannot
be included in TeliaSonera´s financial results for 2003.

"I can´t be anything but satisfied with the trend of business. We are
well on our way to winning back the market shares we lost before in this
segment. Customers who have tried out other suppliers are coming back to
us," says Anders Gylder, head of TeliaSonera´s Large Corporate Customers
business segment.

"The major operators from outside the Scandinavian countries have
realised that it is difficult to establish business with customers in
the Nordic region. Apparently it demands too many big sacrifices in
order to compete with the quality and price of our communication
services," adds Anders Gylder, who hopes the positive trend of business
will continue during the second half of the year.

This hope is based on a growing need for having your office in your
pocket - to have access to work-related data and documents anywhere.

"This can be realised when you make it easier for
employees to connect their desktop computers, laptops and PDAs to the
Web, corporate intranet and enterprise system through broadband access,"
ends Anders Gylder.
