Lyse responds to Broadnet claim to 2nd network status

Monday 12 December 2016 | 12:16 CET | News
Toril Nag, Executive Vice President for Telecommunication at Lyse, has responded in a blog posting to comments on Inside Telecom last week by Broadnet technical director Per Morgen Torvildsen regarding a second fixed line network for Norway. Torvildsen said that the government's Lysne committee's 2015 report said Broadnet was best placed to fulfil a role as the second provider after Telenor. He said it was willing to take on this responsibility, after the dark fibre report highlighting the risk of all cross-border traffic starting in the Oslo region then going to Sweden and Copenhagen.
