Norway - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Norway's broadband penetration rate is among the highest in Europe. The market's development over the years has been supported by a technologically savvy populace and the efforts of providers to migrate subscribers to fast broadband services provided by fibre networks, VDSL and upgraded cable infrastructure. The leading ISPs Telenor and NextGenTel have also deployed services based on G.fast technology.

The regulator has called on the government to help fund additional cable infrastructure to reduce the country's dependence on Telenor's networks, while recent regulator measures enable alternative operators to upgrade Telenor's infrastructure in areas where they provide services. In late 2019 the government proposed making broadband of at least 20Mb/s a universal service.
