Telenor Norway said it will halt modernisation of the copper network and lay fibre instead, according to an excerpt from Computerworld.no. It cited CEO Berit Svendsen as saying the authorities can shelve their electronic communications plan and Digital Agenda, if they do not change the current 'hopeless' regulation. The website said that as regulations stand today, with a three-year notice period, Telenor plans to stop upgrading the copper grid.
