Friday 16 March 2018 | 13:12 CET | News
More people in Norway consider an improvement in internet infrastructure to be more important to businesses than those who think roads and railways are, according to Telenor Norway. A survey by TNS Kantar for Telenor's Status Teknologi Norge 2018 conference and report found that 45 percent of Norwegians consider digital equipment more important, against 41 percent favouring transport networks. Telenor pointed out that the 2018 national budget has assigned NOK 67.5 billion for transport but only  NOK 230 million for digital networks.
