Telia Norway: roaming data use rises 40% in July compared with last year
The top ten roaming list from Telia shows which countries Norwegians use most of their data packs in, and it is in the typical summer vacation countries that the gigabytes are mostly used. Sweden is on top, followed by Spain, Denmark, Greece and Italy.
– On a vacation abroad, the phone can be your best friend, with all possible aids at hand, such as map services, hotel and restaurant recommendations, airline tickets and other travel documents, a camera and, in particular, a platform where you can keep in touch with friends and family through social media . The smartphone has simply become indispensable while traveling, says Jamne.
Nearly equal to national and European use
Compared with last year’s July Telia customers surfed abroad 40 percent more this year, while the increase in mobile data usage in Norway in July has been 33 percent compared with July last year. “It is interesting to see that the difference has leveled out. We were early launching Roam Like Home, and we now see that the high data growth abroad we have seen in previous years has slowed this summer. It’s as expected and means that customers use our services like home (and a little more) when they travel in Europe, “Jamne concludes.
