Telia starts offering 5G roaming in Finland, Norway and Sweden

Telia customers from Finland, Norway and Sweden can now roam, i.e. use their mobile phone while travelling abroad, between the 5G-networks that Telia is building in those countries. 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.

“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,” says Thomas Moe, Head of Roaming at Telia Company.

Telia will continue to expand 5G roaming to Denmark, Estonia and Lithuania, as commercial 5G-services become available in those countries.

The company is also in dialogue with several international operators to establish bilateral 5G-roaming, which means Telia customers travelling abroad to other countries will be able to enjoy local 5G-coverage, and visitors to the Nordics and Baltics can connect to Telia’s 5G-networks in the region.

Thomas Moe explains: “The Nordics and Baltics are known to be at the technical forefront and Telia has extensive mobile networks across the region. 5G deployment will grow over time and throughout the world. This is a true technology shift that will bring completely new experiences to travelers.”

The Nordic and Baltic countries are known for being at the forefront of digitalization and Telia is recognized globally for having the best network infrastructure in the region. The roll-out of 5G will increase in the time ahead and will take place in more and more places around the world, and 5G represents a technological shift that will provide completely new mobile experiences for travelers.

Telia Norway opened its 5G network on May 12 in Lillestrøm and parts of Groruddalen in Oslo for customers. In 2020, 5G coverage will be expanded in Oslo, while the network will be opened in Trondheim and Bergen. Telia will be the first in Norway with a national 5G network by the end of 2023, and already next year the ambition is that up to half the population will have 5G coverage.
