NetCom reducing SMS price by 21 percent for prepaid customers

NetCom reducing SMS price by 21 percent for prepaid customers From 1 March, TeliaSonera's subsidiary, NetCom, is reducing its SMS prices from NOK 1 to NOK 0.79 per text message. "Competition on the Norwegian mobile market is getting a lot harder. NetCom's customers should always know they will get more for their money with us than with our competitors. NetCom gives its support to the competition which benefits the customers," says Barbara Thoralfsson, President of NetCom. The price reduction totals NOK 80 million annually based on the number of SMS texts currently being sent. This latest move means that, based on a full year, NetCom has reduced prices for its customers with over NOK 0.4 billion since 1 June 2003. "Over 45 percent of the mobile customers in Norway use prepaid cards and text messaging is highly important to this group. With this price reduction, we're making our offer even more attractive among customers who prefer prepaid cards," concludes Barbara Thoralfsson.
