TeliaSonera's main brand in Norway, NetCom, will change its name to Telia on 1 March. This is a natural step following the integration of Tele2 and Netcom that has been executed during the last year, the company said. According to the operator, being part of the main brand benefits both consumers and enterprise customers, and the Norwegian society as whole.
