Olf Erickson says that when Telia removed the copper grille from his mother, Gerd Erickson, a so-called “mobile landline” was only installed in the mother’s living room. Not in the second floor bedroom, as the wall outlet no longer works. Gerd Erickson is found on the floor under the telephone jack.

Gerd Erickson drank coffee from a coffee pot designed by Sigvard Bernadotte. Always filled with Gefalia brewed coffee. The copper sugar box was a natural occurrence on the kitchen table. She brewed coffee directly on a wood-burning stove that kept the house warm during the blackouts that became her last day at home in January.

Frida Billund was taken to bed when Telia last year hijacked the old copper net after 107 years and rang alarms in the barn. Then she had to purchase a three-meter antenna to trigger alarms for milking robots. – If it blows at the very least, I lose all coverage, she says.

Mats Weeborne grew up in Stockholm and wonders deeply about why not everyone in Sweden has the same opportunities to connect. It has now been reported that Telia will install a movable mast in the village later this year. But we have received similar information for several years as the dates were brought forward. I believe it when I see it, “he says.

Astrid Poregrin in Sonnersta felt safe with her old landline. Granddaughter Oliver’s granddaughter on the board is now nine years old. Despite the fact that the reception on her phone was hacked when she called, she is absent from the PTS statistics for those without basic telecommunications services.

For many, the orange Televerks became a kind of symbol of a community that assumed a cohesive responsibility. Few people today recognize a service car that will repair a movable mast. Fewer people know what are called companies.

Although the internet speed of 3MB does not meet the Swedish connectivity requirements, it is absent from the PTS statistics for households in Sweden who do not have a 10MB internet.
