One Call switches customers from Telenor to NetCom grid

Wednesday 7 January 2015 | 12:27 CET | News
Tele2 Norway unit One Call has announced it is switching its customers from the Telenor network to NetCom, causing customers to leave complaints on its Facebook page, according to a report on Norwegian public broadcaster NRK's website. One customer enquired whether the MVNO realises that some people do live north of Trondheim, in reference to Netcom's smaller coverage area. Many customers consider the main reason for OneCall's network switch is that Tele2 plans to merge with NetCom, pending approval by the Competition Authority.
