TeliaSonera Finland announces the number of mobile customers in the third quarter

TeliaSonera Finland announces the number of mobile customers in the third quarter At the end of the third quarter of 2003, TeliaSonera Finland's mobile customers numbered 2,441,000. In the preceding quarter, the number of mobile customers was 2,471,000 in Finland. Customer churn was 21.8 percent, while in the preceding quarter it was 10.2 percent. TeliaSonera Finland believes that the change is due to the large number of Free Air-time and tie-in offers in the mobile market in Finland following the introduction of mobile number portability as of July 25. By publishing the mobile customer figures for the end of September before the Group's interim results, TeliaSonera Finland wants to give the market the correct picture of the situation as Numpac Oy announces the total of mobile telephone numbers transferred at the beginning of October. Numpac Oy is a company founded by TeliaSonera Finland Oyj, Radiolinja and DNA, mobile operators operating in Finland, to administer the number portability. In response to the increased competition in the Finnish market TeliaSonera Finland will launch a single rate mobile subscription called Sonera One. All national calls costs 0,16 euro per minute and all national SMS costs 0,12 euro per text message.
