Monday 2 March 2015 | 12:27 CET | News
TeliaSonera's Norwegian subsidiary, NetCom, said it is launching a part-exchange service called MobilPant. Customers will be able to trade in their old mobile handset or tablet and get money off a new device. NetCom said it is aiming to get as many customers as possible on 4G-enabled handsets. Sales assistants in NetCom shops will assess the value of the phones submitted and issue a discount voucher worth that amount. These tokens are valid for one year.
