NextNet hopes to switch DSLAM in Vestre Toten

Friday 6 January 2017 | 12:58 CET | News
Norwegian regional operator NextNet had a rather unsatisfactory meeting with Telenor Norway on 05 January, according to the website of newspaper Oppland Arbeiderblad. Kim Hakonsen, zone manager for the Oppland and Hedmark area, told oa.no that Nextnet will have to put up with some residents of Vestre Toten getting better internet coverage, but not others. NextNet wants to deploy another type of Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer (DSLAM) as quickly as possible in order to reduce the distance from the central unit from between 4 km and 5 km, to between 1.2 km and 1.5 km.
