Norway’s top mobile operator Telenor is facing tighter restrictions from the country’s telecoms regulators after the Norwegian Communications Authority (NKOM) ruled the carrier’s dominant market position obligates it to give access to other operators, Reuters reported.
The ruling, which was sparked by the prices Telenor has been charging smaller operators to use its network, is aimed at facilitating increased competition in the country’s mobile market, NKOM said.
Norway is currently served by three major carriers – Telenor, NetCom and Ice.net – as well as several minor operators. Within the country’s mobile market, Telenor occupies 50 percent of the subscription share and 56 percent of revenue share.
