Telenor has launched its 4G LTE network in 11 cities and towns in Norway. Company plans to continue to develop the network at a rapid pace to provide 4G coverage to one third of Norway population by the end of the year.

Operator's LTE services are now available in Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Stavanger, Lørenskog, Sandnes, Lillestrøm, Asker, Bærum, Lofthus in Hardanger and Longyearbyen. By the end of the year Fredrikstad, Sarpsborg, Skien, Porsgrunn, Drammen and Kristiansand will have 4G coverage. After this an ambitious extension programme will continue until the whole of Norway is covered. Tromsø will be covered in the first quarter of 2013.

“This marks the start of a new mobile fairy tale which all Norwegians will become part of. This year more than one in three Norwegians will have 4G-coverage from Telenor, but already in 2015 as many as nine in 10 will have 4G from Telenor,”  says Berit Svendsen, CEO of Telenor Norway.

Only PC and tablet users will be able to receive Telenor-4G when it is launched, while mobile users will have it in good time for Christmas. 

Telenor is also extending its 3G-coverage at the same time to provide the faster internet services.
