Telia expects to switch off Swedish copper network about 2026

Friday 7 May 2021 | 12:29 CET | News
Telia Sweden said it will make sure that everyone in the country can stay in touch and have modern and secure connectivity available when it decommissions its legacy copper network by about 2026. It said it will provide customers with information about the shut-down one year in advance. Every customer will be offered a service at their home or business, either from Telia itself, from another operator, or in exceptional cases from regulator PTS.
