2 Mar 2022

Norway’s Ministry of Local Government and District (Kommunal- og distriktsdepartement, KDD), in consultation with local telecoms sector regulator the National Communications Authority (Nasjonal kommunikasjonsmyndighet, Nkom), has announced the distribution of NOK305 million (USD34 million) in broadband subsidies for this year.

In a press release regarding the development, it was suggested that the state funding will allow for broadband services to be introduced in those areas currently lacking connectivity, with around 15,000 premises expected to benefit as a result. In terms of a regional breakdown, the largest portion of the funding will go to entities in the county of Viken (NOK64 million), while companies in Innlandet and Nordland have been awarded a total of NOK60 million and NOK38 million, respectively.
