In common with other Scandinavian countries, Norway has a sophisticated telecom market with high broadband and mobile penetration rates and a highly developed digital media sector. Telenor is the dominant operator in all sectors, though there is increasing competition from new entrants. Telia increased its market share by acquiring the operations of Tele2 and in April 2017 it secured regulatory approval for its acquisition of the smaller mobile operator Phonero.
Norway’s mobile market is dominated by Telenor Mobil and Telia. The market is well advanced in LTE infrastructure, with both operators spearheading network development in the region. Both are also looking to close down their 3G and 2G networks (by 2020 and 2025 respectively), focussing instead of developing LTE and 5G technologies, while providing mobile voice using VoLTE.
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. Source
