FICORA orders Telia to reinstate roaming services for legacy customers

17 Jul 2017

Finnish mobile operator Telia Finland has been ordered by the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority (FICORA) to restore roaming services for customers on legacy contracts. The development comes after Telia last month advised subscribers still on tariffs that have not been sold since 2012 that they would no longer be able to use their service abroad from 14 June 2017. Now, the FICORA has directed Telia to reinstate roaming access in stages, with it obliged to offer voice and SMS by 31 August, while data services must be offered again by 31 October.
