Norway Telecommunications Report Q2 2015

BMI View: A change in competitive dynamics is expected in Norway's electronic communications marketin 2015. Firstly, Tele2-backed Network Norway is to be sold to NetCom, accelerating the expansion of thelatter's 4G and mobile broadband coverage; new entrant ICE will acquire Network Norway's customers,giving it a head start in developing its mobile business. Meanwhile, TDC Norway acquired Get, thecountry's largest alternative cable broadband operator and placing increased pressure on incumbentTelenor in the converged services arena. Finally, the national regulatory authority was restructured inJanuary 2015 and its powers and duties refined. The coming months may see it take more direct action tobring down prices for consumers, which would impact players large and small.
