Telia forcing prices of wireless broadband surf down

As of October 1, Telia’s mobile customers can surf with the speed of broadband on a wireless connection from all of Telia’s 1,000 surf zones in Scandinavia for just SEK 10 a day. Telia HomeRun Flatrate is now being reduced from SEK 800 per month to SEK 299 per month (excluding VAT). Approximately half of the surfing zones are located in Sweden.

“There is a clear trend to work from locations other than the office. Many are interested in a flexible and mobile work situation, but not all have attained it. Our goal is to enable these people to try out this new work style by lowering our prices,” says Anders Tillander, TeliaSonera Sweden’s manager of the business market.
