Swedish PTS says fixed-mobile substitution working well

Monday 3 November 2014 | 13:05 CET | News
Swedish telecoms regulator PTS has published an analysis of the technology migration being carried out by TeliaSonera. It said services on mobile networks that are substituting ones previously run on fixed grids are functioning better than they used to do. At the same time, providers leasing capacity from Telia are doing less well at informing their customers about the technology changes. PTS said up to 50,000 subscribers are likely to have been affected by the changes during the period 2009–2015.
