agree  nilsmunkwirell: Based on this context I would have to agree. I could also be a purely marketing focused company i.e Marketing Company.

Reference: What if Telia had a marketing company?

Reference information:
So far it seems to be only a hypothetical possibility, at least according to the source I found online. Anders Pehrsson comments on this in his _Strategy in emerging markets: telecommunications establishments in Europe_. On p. 190, he states his view that the benefits from competition could become more widespread if Telia were split up into a network company and a marketing company. Just one disclaimer: This source is dated since the book came out in 2001, and Telia's setup may have changed since then.

Coincidentally, an article that came out that same year (2001) talks about Telia's subsidiary. (See http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1G1-74934015.html for details.)
