Telia remove fixed telephony

TeliaSonera will spend some smaller fixed exchanges, including our station in Loviken. This means that fixed telephony will be removed.

Consequences for Us:
Many of us use the fixed phone as a backup in case disaster strikes. We have a poor reception on our mobiles and usually have poor speed mobile internet (3G).

What should we require? Should we accept that they dismantle our network (once built with tax money)? Should we require a “Repeaters” at our house that guarantees our mobile coverage?

I suggest that we discuss the issue further at meeting at the parish house on Wednesday.
