Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS said it received 639 complaints from members of the public in the first half of 2017, down 8 percent from 693 a year earlier.

The second biggest issue arose from Telia dismantling the copper network and replacing it with new equipment, with some people no longer able to get a landline.
