Telia Norway lifts Q1 EBITDA on synergies, subscribers drop

Wednesday 20 April 2016 | 10:39 CET | News
Telia Norway improved its EBITDA year-on-year in the first quarter but saw its number of mobile subscribers decline by 38,000 over the period. It said it has reached its SEK 1 billion synergy target from last year's acquisition of Tele2 Norway and has successfully rebranded its operations from the old Netcom name. Its greater scale and expanded LTE coverage has improved its customer proposition, it said, and positions it well for the future.
