Wednesday 31 December 2014 | 11:11 CET | News
Ventelo said it will formally switch to the Phonero name on 01 January 2015 after the two companies' merger. Support and information will be available on the Phonero website in future. Existing contracts, prices and products remain valid although Ventelo customers will now have access to Phonero ones, too. The sale of Ventelo by Broadnet was announced in July 2014. Phonero uses the Telenor mobile network. Phonero is majority-owned by the Kistefos investment group, whose sole owner is businessman Christen Sveaas.
