Norway's consumer affairs arbitrator, Forbrukerombudet, is asking Telenor's Canal Digital and TDC's Get to declare when they will stop forcing their broadband customers to subscribe to their television services as well. The two companies had said they would change their practices by the end of 2016, to allow customers to pay for standalone broadband, and time is running out. The agency is therefore seeking a meeting with them to find out their plans.
