Telia Sweden says fibre excavation permit hitches contribute to lower Q3 net sales

Thursday 19 October 2017 | 10:33 CET | News
Telia said that net sales in Sweden declined by 2.4 percent year on year in the third quarter, hit by fixed phone turnover erosion and by problems in obtaining excavation permits, which led to fewer fibre connections. Capital expenditure dropped by almost 20 percent. Telia continued to gain mobile subscribers, including for M2M.
