TeliaSonera Finland reaches agreement with Elisa and DNA on new mobile
interconnection fees

TeliaSonera Finland has reached an agreement with Elisa Corporation and DNA
Networks Ltd on new mobile interconnection fees for the years 2007-2010.
According to the agreement, the parties will adopt symmetrical interconnection
pricing in December 2009. TeliaSonera Finland and Elisa will have the same
prices already from the beginning of 2008.

Interconnection prices 2007-2008, eurocent/min:
     TSF Elisa DNA
2007 6.6 7.0   8.2
2008 5.1 5.1   6.0


At the beginning of 2009, DNA's price will be 0.5 cents higher than TSF's and
Elisa's, and from December 2009 all three parties will have an equal
interconnection price.


TeliaSonera estimates that the new interconnection pricing will have a positive
effect of approximately SEK 150 million (EUR 15 million) on the 2007 result of
Finnish mobile communications, assuming the current traffic volumes and taking
into account the change in the agreement with Elisa for the year 2007. The
additional effect on the result of the forthcoming years is estimated to be
smaller depending on market development.
