Sweden’s Telia Company has launched 5G roaming between its subsidiaries in Sweden, Norway and Finland. To use the service, customers need a 5G-ready subscription and smartphone, and they need to be in an area where there is 5G coverage. The firm says it will expand roaming to cover its operations in Denmark, Estonia and Lithuania once 5G services become available in those countries. Telia is also in dialogue with several international operators to establish bilateral 5G roaming beyond Scandinavia and the Baltic region.
Thomas Moe, Head of Roaming at Telia Company, commented: ‘Travelling is currently limited due to Corona. But this is about laying the groundwork for the future and we have now taken an important first step by launching 5G roaming between Finland, Norway and Sweden. We want to be able to offer our customers the best possible customer experience, regardless of which country they visit.’
