Telia Norway starts offering home 5G wireless broadband, beginning in Trondheim

Monday 9 November 2020 | 11:56 CET | News
Telia said it has become the first operator in Norway to start offering fixed wireless access (FWA) to 5G as standard broadband for the home. The service has begun in Trondheim before being phased in to other parts of the country that have 5G reception, depending on customer interest. Pal Rune Kaalen, head of private market affairs at the operator, said the service should be attractive to customers still served via the copper network, which is gradually being dismantled.
