TeliaSonera forced to cut wholesale fixed network charges

9 Apr 2010

Sweden’s telecoms regulator Post & Telestyrelsen (PTS) yesterday ordered the country’s incumbent PSTN operator TeliaSonera to cut its prices for a range of wholesale fixed network services by between 1% and 10%, reports Dow Jones Newswires. The PTS said that the price regulation will improve competition in the market, but Nina Stridsberg, head of communications at TeliaSonera’s Swedish infrastructure unit Skanova, said the company plans to appeal the ruling, although it will comply with the regulator’s instructions initially.
