TeliaSonera to be the sole provider of fixed and mobile telephony
services to Skanska in the Nordic countries
TeliaSonera has signed a three-year Nordic frame agreement with Skanska
on the provision of both fixed and mobile telephony services in Sweden,
Norway, Denmark and Finland. The value of the agreement is approximately
SEK 240 million.
The agreement concerns both fixed and mobile telephony services in all
the Nordic countries, and it makes TeliaSonera the largest provider of
telecommunications services to Skanska.
As a result of the agreement, TeliaSonera wins a completely new account
in Denmark, wins back Skanska's mobile services in Sweden, and expands
its customer relationship with the Group in Finland and Norway.
"We are very pleased with the agreement with Skanska. This is the first
time that TeliaSonera signs an agreement on the provision of both fixed
and mobile telephony services in all the Nordic countries", says Terje
Christoffersen, Group Vice President, Marketing, Products and Services,
"This is the first time Skanska enters into a pan-Nordic agreement with
a telecommunications operator. TeliaSonera satisfies Skanska's demands
and has the products and services we need in the entire Nordic market.
The agreement allows us to cut our costs, which is something we are
intensively striving for in general", says Torsten Alvelid, Head of IT
Infrastructure, Skanska AB.
