"Reaching 20 million customers is an important milestone in the development of the company, but only the beginning of the journey. The momentum we have gained in customer intake and lower churn is the main reason for the large customer intake, although the summer months typically have a lower customer intake", said Lars-Johan Jarnheimer, CEO of Tele2.
- The Fink family from Düsseldorf in Germany, are the 20 millionth customer to choose Tele2's good value, smart and flexible communication solutions. The family recently became a Tele2 pre-select customer.
