“Good content is a strong traffic driver in Telenor’s nationwide broadband network and is becoming increasingly important to win the fight for customers. Game of Thrones has gained a good foothold among Norwegian viewers over time, and is considered by many as the flagship for HBO, “says Bjørnsen.
Telenor has also detected tects a significant increase in traffic on Canal Digital Cable’s TV solution T-We. Since the start of Season 7 there has been a doubling in the number of viewers on C More in the T-We app seen against a regular day.
