Sweden brings in month's notice for private telecom users

Wednesday 30 April 2014 | 12:31 CET | News
A maximum service cancellation notice period of one month comes into force on 01 May for individual telephony and broadband customers, Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS has announced. This follows a change in the law on e-coms. It said it is still permissible to agree commitment periods, but the maximum for private consumers is 24 months. After the agreed period, customers have the right to ask the operator to unlock any handset, modem or other equipment locked on to its network.
