Telenor Norway said it has now 1,200 new 4G base stations in place. The operator won frequencies in the 800 MHz auction in December 2013 and says 200 municipalities will get LTE on those frequencies before the summer holidays commence. Coverage director Bjorn Amundsen said coverage has risen from 52 percent of the population when Telenor started the deployment in March, to 70 percent currently.
