Recent measurements in Q2 2018 carried out using the Speedtest app by Ookla show that Telenor has the world’s fastest mobile network.
Approximately 120,000 speed tests were carried out in Norway during the second quarter this year. The fact that Telenor’s mobile customers themselves have tested the speed under conditions they normally use their mobile phones, makes these tests extra valuable and reliable. The average speed from all of these measurements is then compared with corresponding numbers from other mobile operators around the world. In the measurements from Ookla, Telenor’s customers achieved download speeds of 72.05 Mbps. Telenor’s population coverage for 4G in Norway is now 99.4 per cent.
Norway is broken up by high mountains and deep fjords. At the same time, Norwegians build their homes and cabins well off the beaten track but still have the same high expectations when it comes to mobile coverage. This makes the expansion of coverage a challenging task.
