FORNEBU, Norway -- Today Telenor is launching its fourth-generation mobile network (4G) in 11 cities and towns in Norway. It will continue to be developed at a rapid pace, and more than one in three Norwegians will have 4G coverage from Telenor by the end of the year.

With speeds up to 10 times faster than today the 4G network will provide a much better user experience.

"The current rapid development of digital services places increased requirements on the mobile network, and with 4G we are taking an important step towards increased capacity and faster speeds. With 4G from Telenor everything is in place for efficient streaming or downloading of films and music, image sharing and video conferencing whenever and wherever," says Berit Svendsen, CEO of Telenor Norway.

Telenor is today launching its 4G network 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 from Telenor. 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.
