Update: 14 July 2020 | 09:09 CET
Telia Carrier said it has been selected in a tender process by Norwegian communications regulator Nkom to establish a new, secure route for electronic communications between Norway and other countries. Currently, most traffic from Norway follows two paths through Sweden. In case of disruption or a worst-case scenario where all connections through Sweden are lost, Nkom wants to expand the network infrastructure with a new route.
