Storm Egon hits fixed and mobile telephony in Sweden

Monday 12 January 2015 | 12:14 CET | News
Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS said Storm Egon hit fixed and mobile telephony communications over the weekend. It said mobile communications were affected chiefly in Vastra Gotaland and Jonkoping counties, as well as in Halland, Skane, Kronoberg and Kalmar county. Some 17,000 customers were left without any fixed line connections, about half of them in Vastra Gotaland. Most of the problems were caused by power cuts but some telecommunications infrastructure was probably damaged, too, with fallen trees hitting cables. Operators have been taking steps to resolve the problems.
