Small mobile telecoms providers in Norway are still not making money, according to an article in the business paper Dagens Naeringsliv. The MVNO Chili Mobil lost NOK 78 out of every NOK 100 in revenue it received last year, managing director Lars Ryen Mill told it. He said Chili had struggled to cope with demand when it brought out its 1,000 GB monthly subscription in June, but the paper said it is still not profitable.
