Norway's mobile market is dominated by Telenor Mobil and TeliaSonera's Telia division (formerly NetCom before being rebranded in March 2016). The joint venture Mobile Norway was part-owned by Tele2 until Tele2's failure to secure spectrum at auction in December 2013 led the company to sell its Norwegian operations. This directly benefitted the new entrant Ice.net, owned by AINMT Holdings, which did secure spectrum at auction and which gained Network Norway's customer base as part of the deal enforced by the telecom regulator. Voice and data services from these operators are supplemented by those from a growing number of MVNOs.

The market is well advanced in LTE developments, with both Telenor and Telia spearheading networks in the region. Both operators are looking to close down their 3G and 2G networks (by 2020 and 2025 respectively), focussing instead of developing LTE and the forthcoming 5G technologies, while providing mobile voice using VoLTE. Telia offers an LTE-A service providing 300Mb/s to about 1.5 million Norwegians, while it has also achieved 1Gb/s data rates using quad-band carrier aggregation technology as a precursor to 5G.

There has been further consolidation in the mobile market, with Telia acquiring Phonero in November 2016 and in the process increasing its market share to around 27%.

This report profiles Norway's mobile voice and data market, providing statistics on the main operators, a review of the key regulatory issues, and a snapshot of the consumer market for services such as SMS, mobile TV and mobile broadband.

Key developments:

Telia achieves speeds of 1Gb/s on its LTE infrastructure; Telenor and TeliaSonera win additional spectrum in the 1800MHz band; Telenor looks to VoLTE as it aims to close down its 2G and 3G networks by 2025; Telia acquires Phonero; Ice.net expands mobile services to residential sector following its acquisition of Network Norway; regulator consults on implications for DTTV if 700MHz spectrum is assigned for mobile broadband; Telia launches VoLTE service; Telenor signs five-year framework agreement with ZTE; multi-spectrum auction results; SMS traffic affected by smartphone messaging alternatives; mobile network traffic growth slows; TeliaSonera contracts Huawei and Ericsson to expand LTE network; MNOs set up m-commerce joint venture; Telenor's LTE network to reach 99% population coverage by 2017; report update includes the regulator's market data to June 2016, telcos' operating and financial data to Q3 2016, recent market developments.
