TELE2 PASSES 20 MILLION CUSTOMERS
Tele2 today announced that the company passed the 20 million customer
mark at the beginning of September. This suggests that the customer
intake during the third quarter will be the highest in the company's
history. At the end of June, Tele2 had 18.7 million customers.
"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
- 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.
