On Tuesday it was announced Canal Digital Kabel is to be integrated into Telenor Norway. The TV business has a stable 548,000 subscribers.
“In Norway, network quality is key to our customers and we are proud to have the world’s fastest mobile network. Our mobile customer base grew for the first time in three years and in addition, we continued to expand our fibre network and connected close to 9,000 households during the quarter,” said Sigve Brekke, Chief Executive Officer of Telenor Group. “We also successfully completed the sale of our operations in Central and Eastern Europe and will continue to drive our transformation forward with a clear focus on growth, efficiency and simplification.”
The Canal Digital branding remains in DTH, where the subscriber base continues to erode, losing 11,000 to end September on 806,000 subs.
Canal Digital, which broadcasts from Telenor’s one West position, increased EBITDA by 3%.
