Nearly 300,000 mobile Tele2 customers have accepted an offer to become NetCom subscribers in six months. As a result, on November 20 Tele2 officially shut down as a brand in the Norwegian mobile market.
In February, the merger between TeliaSonera and Tele2 was approved by the Norwegian competition authorities and the Tele2 brand was to be closed down before the end of 2015. Only two months later, the first Tele2-customers became NetCom subscribers and the rest were transferred before the end of November.
"Our customers have been positive during this process, but I completely understand that some of them have chosen other brands. Luckily, most of them chose other brands within TeliaSonera, such as OneCall and Chess, so at least they are within our company," says LÝvstad, head of NetCom Private.
Not only private customers have transferred to NetCom. 20,000 business subscribers have gone through the same processes, but with a few adjustments, especially on the communications part.
