See note 17, 18, 19, 35 and 38 for further information. Prepaid leases primarily relate to access charges for lease of the cables of other operators (local loop unbundling etc) in Sweden and Denmark. The basis for the amortisation period for access charges is the estimated customer relationship period, which is based on historical information.
