“Nordic customers are among the most advanced mobile phone users in the world, especially when in their home countries where the prices are low and easy to control. But more and more we see that our customers expect to be able to use their mobile phones when travelling, with the same kind of cost control and predictability as they have at home,” says Kjell Morten Johnsen, EVP and Head of Telenor’s European operations. “By introducing TravelSure, along with the new price models in Norway, Sweden and Denmark, Telenor is taking a big step towards making it affordable, worry-free and flexible to use the mobile phone while in the most popular holiday destinations for Scandinavians in the world.”

The Telenor TravelSure concept

Telenor TravelSure is a new roaming offer that will be launched in all Telenor Group operations. The launch this June in the Nordics allows Telenor customers to benefit from very low per minute prices, meaning they can stay worry-free no matter how long they talk. It also includes launching new options and expanding the per day offerings for mobile data in additional countries. From there Telenor will continuously improve the offerings for both voice and data roaming.

“People throughout all of Telenor Group’s markets are increasingly travelling across borders and it’s important to be a leader in allowing them to access the full benefit of mobile technology wherever they are,” says Kjell Morten Johnsen.

Roaming in the Nordics – details

In Norway, Sweden and Denmark, Telenor has launched slightly different roaming offers under the same Telenor TravelSure concept. All three Nordic countries will now have an attractive voice offering and a new and easy–to–understand data roaming tariff.
