Norway - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Norway’s broadband penetration rate is among the highest in Europe, the result of a technologically savvy populace and the efforts of providers to migrate subscribers to fast broadband services provided by fibre networks, VDSL and upgraded cable infrastructure. The leading ISPs Telenor and NextGenTel have deployed services based on G.fast technology. The regulator has also called on the government to help fund additional cable infrastructure to reduce the country’s dependence on Telenor’s networks. Additional infrastructure will help reduce access costs for consumers.
