Nkom gets extra funding to boost emergency readiness

Wednesday 13 May 2015 | 11:56 CET | News
Norwegian communications regulator Nkom said the government has allocated it an extra NOK 5.6 million from the 2015 national budget. In addition, Nkom may invest in emergency readiness and equipment. As a result, the watchdog plans to increase staffing levels within security and crisis preparations, and establish a watch to deal better with unexpected incidents within electronic communications networks. Most of Nkom's income derives from permit and licence fees.
