Telia is the incumbent telecom operator in Sweden and Finland. Besides extensive operations in these two countries, the firm has assets in Norway, Denmark, and the Baltic region. It also has a noncontrolling stake in Turkcell, the largest wireless operator in Turkey, though this position has been reduced in size. The company is increasingly pushing converged services of its fixed-line and wireless telecom operations. After a major scandal involving illegal payments to enter Uzbekistan, Telia has begun exiting all the Eurasian countries in which it operated. Its strategy is to be a world-class service company with a high-quality, cost-efficient network.
