Telenor Sweden says RLAH boosts data use 1,500% in one year

Thursday 27 July 2017 | 13:22 CET | News
Telenor Sweden said eight of of ten people say their social lives when on holiday have been transformed by roam-like-at-home services in the EU. The operator brought in its own RLAH services in June 2016, a year before new EU regulations. Average mobile roaming use by Telenor Sweden's customers has gone up by almost 1,500 percent since it brought in its Telenor Freedom subscriptions last year.
