Nkom says Telia Norway can keep providing zero-rated Music Freedom for now

Tuesday 19 December 2017 | 12:37 CET | News
The Norwegian Communications Authority (Nkom) said it sees no reason to take action against Telia Norway's zero-rated Music Freedom service, following an analysis by Nkom in terms of EU net neutrality rules. Nkom said it has critical comments to make on several factors, but has concluded that there are no grounds to intervene at this point in time. The watchdog added that it will closely follow the development of zero-rating in the Norwegian market.
