Norway’s mobile market is a triopoly between the network operators Telenor Mobile, TeliaSonera’s NetCom and the new player Mobile Norway, supplemented by a growing number of MVNOs. Mobile penetration reached 115% by mid-2010, and although overall subscriber growth has fallen to about 3% the 3G sector has proved resilient, with strong growth resulting from new subscribers as well as from the rapid migration from GSM networks. Both Telenor and NetCom operate GSM and 3G services, while Mobile Norway, the joint venture between Network Norway and Tele2 has deployed a 3G in the 90MHz band. Nordisk Mobiltelefon recovered from its bankruptcy in early 2009 and operates a 3G network in the 450MHz band. This report profiles Norway’s mobile market in 2010, providing an overview of mobile statistics, regulatory issues and technologies, as well as a snapshot of the consumer market for mobile data services such as SMS, mobile TV and mobile broadband. Regularly updated statistics as well as forecasts and further commentary and analysis on new market developments are available from the Norway - Mobile Market - Statistics and Forecasts report.
