Telenor Sweden sees data roaming rising to 50% this year

Thursday 2 April 2015 | 11:56 CET | News
Telenor Sweden CEO Patrik Hofbauer predicts that 50 percent of its customers will use data roaming in 2015, rising to 80 percent in 2016. This would be a 150 percent from the current rate of 32 percent. Telenor said although prices have been set as low as SEK 0.15 per megabyte for customers using mobile telecommunications abroad, and the end to the risk of 'bill shock', few Telenor customers dare to use mobile internet when they are overseas. It said many companies still prevent staff from using data roaming when they travel abroad. Hofbauer said there is an often unfounded fear.
