Norway's mobile market is dominated by the triopoly of Telenor Mobile, TeliaSonera's NetCom and the joint venture Mobile Norway. Services from these operators are supplemented by those from a growing number of MVNOs. A new entrant, branded as Ice.net and owned by AINMT Holdings, secured spectrum at auction in December 2013.
