Nkom to allocate NOK 149.7 million in broadband subsidies for 2018

Tuesday 27 February 2018 | 14:44 CET | News
Norwegian communications regulator Nkom said it will allocate NOK 149.7 million in broadband subsidies in 2018 for places where its provision is not commercially viable. The funding will be divided among Norway's eighteen counties in proportion to coverage as registered with Nkom. Nordland county will get the lion's share at 13.3 percent or NOK 19.98 million, while the well-supplied Oslo region will get just 0.7 percent, or NOK 996,025.
