Nkom says residential fast broadband availability still varies by region in H1

Thursday 21 October 2021 | 14:38 CET | News
New regional statistics from communications regulator Nkom show that there were still large geographical differences in availability of high-speed broadband in Norway in the first half of 2021. Nationwide, 90 percent of Norwegian homes have access to internet with a download speed of at least 100 Mbps but in Nordland county, the rate is only 83 percent and in Innlandet county, it is 81 percent. In Oslo, nearly everyone has such service available.
