Telia will charge for the use of Skype

Friday, 20 April 2012
Telia will start charging for mobile IP telephony such as Skype, even in Sweden. No more free calls from VoIP services such as Skype and Viber.

The announcement attracted attention when it came during a congress in Barcelona earlier this year.
It was launched in Spain within a month and in Sweden for new subscriptions during the summer, said TeliaSonera's CEO Lars Nyberg in connection with the quarterly report, the newspaper, Computer Sweden wrote.

Starting in the summer subscribers will be able to choose between subscription which includes mobile VoIP or not, reported tabloid paper, Aftonbladet.

Telia – Sonera reported a poor quarterly report yesterday and as competition tightens so they start looking for ways to continue strengthening their power.

Already, several mobile operators have wanted to block users from using free telephony services, but yet it was all about empty words. This makes TeliaSonera first to convert threats into reality when they’ll introduce a fee for using a mobile voice data.

“We will start charging for mobile voice. If you want to continue using it with mobile phone, you’ll pay for it,” said CEO Lars Nyberg to Swedish business daily, Dagen Industri in conjunction with yesterday’s presentation of its interim report.

The extra cost does not apply to all subscriptions. It will be included in the high end. If you pay Skr399 a month it is included in the price, Lars Nyberg said.
