Telia: phone system back up again

A mystery problem made many phone numbers unreachable for hours on Monday.

Phone operator Telia Sonera said on Monday evening it did not know why many Swedish numbers were out of action for several hours.

Numbers beginning 0771 and 020 could not be contacted, including several government agencies and Telia itself.

Telia's Anders Gunnarsson says to news agency TT that everything is underway again, and they are now working on making sure there will be no more disruption to the system. They will be working through the night.
