Telia Norge confirms closure of 3G network

11 Nov 2021

Mobile network operator (MNO) Telia Norge has confirmed that its 3G network has now been fully shut down – in line with plans announced back in 2018. With the cellco having initially switched off its UMTS infrastructure in the Trondelag region and further south, it had retained 3G connectivity in more rural and remote regions to the north. Now, however, in a press release confirming the complete closure of its 3G network, the MNO noted that, having switched off its final 2100MHz 3G base station in June 2021, its last 900MHz 3G base station was confirmed as having been switched off this month.
