Today, Telia is launching five mobile broadband subscriptions in Sweden for private and enterprise customers. The new subscriptions start at SEK 40 per month and also include access to Telia’s nationwide network of surfing zones - Telia Homerun - in addition to the mobile network. In order to protect customers against high surfing rates, Telia is also introducing a maximum rate of SEK 399 per month within Sweden.
Three of the new subscriptions – “Telia Mobilt bredband Start” (Telia Mobile Broadband Start) and “Telia Mobilt bredband Kväll & helg” (Telia Mobile Broadband Evenings & Weekends) for the private market, and “Telia Mobilt bredband Start Företag” (Telia Mobile Broadband Start Enterprises) for companies, have a built-in high-cost threshold in the form of a capped rate of SEK 399 per month as long as the customer surfs in Sweden. Surfing with mobile broadband can never cost more than SEK 399 per month, regardless of how much the customer surfs.
“Although most customers will not surf up to this maximum monthly rate, we know they will appreciate the extra security provided by this protection,” says Håkan Dahlström, Head of Mobility Services at TeliaSonera Sweden. “Now customers can relax and feel secure in knowing that it will never cost more than SEK 399 per month when they surf the mobile broadband network in Sweden.”
The other two subscriptions, “Telia Mobilt bredband Fastpris” (Telia Mobile Broadband Fixed Rate) and “Telia Mobilt bredband Fastpris Företag” (Telia Mobile Broadband Fixed Rate Enterprises) both have a fixed rate of SEK 199 per month and include unlimited connections 24 hours per day.
In addition to the GSM, Edge and 3G networks, all subscriptions include access to Telia’s nationwide network of surfing zones – Telia Homerun. These hot spots are available at cafés, camping sites, hotels and conference facilities in Sweden and not least around the growing number of rebuilt telephone booths with WLAN – called surfing kiosks – in Sweden. This means that customers currently have access to more than 700 surfing zones in the country. The subscriptions also include an updated version of the Telia Connect software, which ensures that a computer is always automatically connected to the fastest available network.
“On the whole, the launch of these new subscriptions means that we can now offer customers the best mobile broadband coverage in Sweden, with speeds up to 2 Mbit/s, and at very attractive prices,” says Håkan Dahlström.
The above-mentioned rates include VAT (25%) for the private market in Sweden but are excluding VAT for the enterprise market. For complete information about rates, terms and conditions (in Swedish only), go to www.telia.se/mobiltbredband.
