Norwegian mobile web use rises in H1 but revenue falls

Thursday 24 October 2013 | 12:30 CET | News
Norwegian postal and telecommunications regulator PT has issued its report for the electronic communications market for the first half of 2013. It said the market was characterised by strong growth in mobile internet traffic but a downturn in revenue, despite an increase in income from sales of mobile telephony packages. Total revenue in the retail market for mobile telephony, fixed line telephony and broadband fell by NOK 305 million from the first half of 2012. Operators' income was NOK 14.23 billion, which was NOK 482 million lower than in the first half of 2010, the peak year.
