On Monday 12 June, Telenor launches second generation broadband – built on ADSL2+ technology. Customers in both the Consumer and Business Markets will be offered up to 16,000 kbit/s broadband speeds from Telenor. Telenor also launches a Mini/extended coverage product, which will give even more people access to broadband.
“This time we are doing some stretching at both ends. We are providing much higher speeds, and at the same time we are able to offer a broadband product to many of our customers who were previously residing too far away from a central to receive ADSL,” said Berit Svendsen, Director of Fixed at Telenor Nordic.
With the new technology, ADSL2+, or second generation broadband over the fixes line telecommunications network, Telenor is now launching a whole range of new speeds of up to 16,000, 12,000 and 8,000 kbit/s.
The Mini/extended coverage product offers speeds will vary depending on the quality of the line, and on the distance to the central. The product is offered with 864-160 kbit/s for incoming, and 256-128 kbit/s for outgoing speeds. With this ADSL product Telenor increases the extent of its coverage, and more than 90 per cent of all Norwegian households and businesses will now have access to broadband.
“We are now offering a wide range of ADSL products, and customers will have access to broadband services that have been prepared for TV, telephony and Internet over the same line. In this way we also contribute to the government target of providing broadband to even more people over the regular copper network,” said Division Director Berit Svendsen at Telenor.
