Thursday 22 March 2018 | 13:58 CET | News
Norwegian regional utility Lyse said margins at its telecoms division were hit by a doubling of IT costs as its Altibox television platform and telecoms support systems undergo digitisation.

On 31 December, there were 493,802 active broadband customers, of which 280,551 were on its own fibre.
