Norway has 69% broadband coverage at minimum 100 Mbps

Thursday 25 September 2014 | 11:49 CET | News
Norway has 75 percent coverage for broadband at over 30 Mbps, according to the Ministry of Transport and Communication. According to its report 'Broadband Coverage 2014', penetration for internet service at a minimum of 100 Mbps is 69 percent, up 6 percentage points from 2013. There is almost 100 percent coverage for internet at up to 10 Mbps, but there are large differences between built-up and sparsely populated areas. The government has budgeted NOK 160 million for 2014 to subsidise broadband development where it would not be commercially viable, said the ministry.
