Telia Raises the Price for Fixed Telephony Subscriptions

Telia will raise the price of the "Telia Bas" telephony subscription from SEK 125 to SEK 145 per month (SEK 132, excl. VAT, for Telia business subscriptions).

The price of the "Telia Bas" subscription, which is regulated by the Swedish Post and Telecom Agency, has not been raised since 2001. On February 12, the infrastructure company, Skanova, announced to its carrier customers that it will increase the price of access to the copper network.

Skanova claims its price increase is a result of the ongoing shift in technology and rising costs per connection .
