Telenor goes IP; introduces flat-rate fixed line calls

16 Mar 2006

Telenor of Norway has contracted Alcatel to deploy a next generation IP broadband services access platform as part of the telco’s shift to a fully IP network. Alcatel will supply a solution based on its Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) products which will enable Telenor to offer its customers high bandwidth triple-play services such as IPTV, video-on-demand and HDTV.

Meanwhile, Telenor yesterday launched its first ever flat rate fixed line telephony tariff, in a bid to counter rapid fixed-to-mobile migration in its domestic market. The new call plans charge a set monthly fee covering all calls made on analogue and ISDN fixed lines to other domestic fixed lines. ‘’For the first time in its more than 150-year history, Telenor now introduces flat rates for regular telephony,’’ a statement said. Telenor’s wireline telephony revenues declined 3.8% year-on-year in the fourth quarter of 2005 alone.
