Spotify and Telia sign two-year deal

Telecoms operator TeliaSonera and music service Spotify have signed a two-year cooperation agreement that will enable Telia’s customers to use Spotify in computers, mobile phones and TVs in the Swedish market. Telia is also planning to launch a special Spotify-ready mobile phone.

“I can say that we are really glad to work with Spotify. The main idea of this deal is that we found a service that meets our customers’ demands,” Stefan Trampus, TeliaSonera’s head of Broadband Services in Sweden, told The Local.

According to the two companies, the core goal is to reach a higher number of users and to introduce Spotify to a larger market. “Our aim is to gain new customers and to maintain loyal customers”, said Trampus.

“The Spotify mobile will be the first one in which the music server comes as part of the package”, he added.

Telia expects its Spotify mobiles to be available some time in the next few months.
