Netcom's Tele2 Norway purchase may not lower prices - report

Tuesday 8 July 2014 | 12:10 CET | News
The CEO of TeliaSonera unit Netcom, August Baumann, promises lower prices on the end-user market following its acquisition of Tele2 Norway, but Norwegian public broadcaster NRK said on its website that this is in doubt. NRK cited Tore Aaronaes, telecoms analyst at Norsk Telecom, as saying the deal would not improve competition. The Norwegian Consumer Council also believes customers will be the losers.
