Nkom notifies ESA of proposed price regulation for Telenor’s wholesale fixed-wireless service

18 Oct 2021

Norway’s National Communications Authority Nasjonal kommunikasjonsmyndighet, Nkom) has sent a draft decision regarding price regulation related to Telenor Norge’s wholesale fixed-wireless broadband to the EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA). In a press release regarding the matter, the regulator confirmed that the operator will be required to offer wholesale fixed-wireless broadband ‘at prices which mean that the buyer of access is not put in a margin squeeze’. To ensure Telenor complies with this proposed regulation, the Nkom has said it will conduct margin squeeze tests and gross margin tests on the operator’s retail fixed-wireless offerings twice a year.

With the ESA now having one month to comment on the Nkom’s proposals, the regulator has said it will consider any feedback from the European body when it is received before issuing its final decision on this matter.
