|Norway Adds FTTH Connections|
Second only in the list of FTTH-connected European nations to long-standing rivals and neighbours Sweden, Norway is busily increasing its overall fibre penetration with details of a new deployment to 50,000 additional households.
Asker og Baerun Fibernett, a large Norwegian regional broadband operator, is building an open fibre-based network for its two major municipalities (Asker and Baerum) which lie on the outskirts of Oslo. “The goal is 50,000 customers within 4-5 years,” said a spokesperson.
It is nearly a year to the day since Norwegian incumbent Telenor unveiled plans for its own major FTTH and IPTV-related investments, which have since begun.
