"Telecom regulator PT and consulting firm Nexia [estimate] growth in the fixed network will be around 30 percent annually...traffic for a fixed internet residential customer is almost 20 times higher than the one of a mobile broadband customer [while] customers connected to fibre use significantly more capacity than customers with asymmetric broadband connections like DSL. The total revenue per subscriber has been fairly stable and is not expected to increase, but researchers believe there may be a shift in turnover per user between different types of services. The researchers suggest that reduced costs are therefore probably the main driver to ensure further network development. The research also shows that most customers have a broadband service with access to a much higher capacity than they are actually subscribed for. This may have several explanations, and Nexia points out that the marginal cost of many broadband services increases with increasing capacity. Fibre to the home (FTTH) will be able to meet the capacity needs of all user and service groups in the foreseeable future. However, the researchers note that the costs of such a development are considerable." [1]

"Norway’s broadband penetration is among the highest in Europe, the result of a technologically demanding populace and the efforts of providers to migrate dial-up subscribers to broadband services. Telenor and NextGenTel are the leading ISPs, though a number of smaller operators and resellers are also active. In this report we profile Norway’s fixed and wireless broadband markets in 2011, together with developments in related technologies such as Broadband Powerline, wireless broadband, and Internet via satellite. We also provide broadband forecasting scenarios to 2012 and 2020, and assess the strategies of the main players including Telenor and NextGenTel.

Broadband revenue growth slows in 2011; fibre-based broadband worth NOK1.445 billion; mobile broadband subscriber base grows 80% in 2010; Telenor purchases two local fibre providers; Altibox launches mobile broadband; broadband growth slows to 3% in line with higher penetration; regulator market data to June 2011; operator data to September 2011." Companies covered included Telenor, NextGenTel, Lyse, NetCom, Nordisk Mobiltelefon. [2]
