STOCKHOLM -- Telia is discontinuing the entrance fee and flat monthly rate for mobile data service (GPRS) for enterprise customers in the Swedish market. These customers will instead pay for the amount of data they send or receive. The price starts at 3.2 öre per kB (excludingVAT) and the rate decreases as usage increases.

Telia is discontinuing the earlier price variants of an entrance fee and flat monthly rate that proved to be a threshold for users when they started using mobile Internet services. With the new pricing model, the more data users send during the month, the lower the traffic fee will be. Most companies will be able to reduce their mobile data costs with this new pricing model.

"The previous pricing system made it difficult for our enterprise customers to choose the type of subscription. With the new model, it will be easier for them to get an overview of their costs and we believe more companies will now start to use the mobile Internet," says Erik Heilborn, head of the Business Segment at TeliaSonera Sweden.
