Telenor Norge highlights its progress as copper switch-off looms

8 Sep 2022

Norway’s fixed voice incumbent Telenor Norge has issued an update on the progress being made towards its planned switch-off of copper-based services at the end of this year. In a press release regarding the matter, the company confirmed that in the residential sector it now has just 7,600 fixed broadband and 3,400 fixed voice subscriptions where it comes to its legacy copper network. Meanwhile, in the business sector it said around 6,400 fixed broadband subscriptions and 8,500 fixed voice subscriptions active on copper-based services too.

Keen to highlight how many subscriptions have transitioned to more modern technologies since Telenor Norge first announced plans to close its legacy infrastructure in January 2019, it noted that at that latter date its copper network served a total of 530,000 fixed broadband and 330,000 fixed voice subscriptions.
