Mobiles Replaced Landline Phones

Published onsdag 29 september 2010 kl 11.03

The Swedish-Finnish telecommunications giant Telia-Sonera says it is continuing with its plans to phase out landine telephones in Sweden and replace them with mobile services.

50,000 phone lines are to be replaced with mobile networks in the next five years - especially in more remote areas such as the Stockholm archipelago.

The move started after the winter storm Gudrun knocked over hundreds of trees on power and telephone lines in southern Sweden a few years ago - leaving many without electricity and telephone service sometimes for weeks. This gave the company the choice of the more expensive method of burying the lines underground - or replacing the service with mobile transmission.
