The company's turnover increased seven percent to 24.8 billion kronor, against 23.16 billion last year.
"Group earnings were the best ever in the third quarter, driven by strong sales growth and substantial profit contributions from our minority owned operations in Eurasia," CEO Lars Nyberg said.
The company also announced a 10 billion kronor extraordinary dividend for 2007.
In opening deals TeliaSonera shares were up 6.9 percent at 62 kronor following the news, on a Stockholm stock exchange which was 0.5 percent higher.
