Telenor says it now offers a complete TV solution via Wireless Broadband over 5G.
Over the past three years, the Norwegian telco has been offering more than 100,000 customers a wireless broadband service from Telenor for homes, cabins and offices.
“Now it will also be possible to get a TV subscription for customers who have 5G coverage. This will provide a simpler and more flexible TV solution for very many customers around the country,” says Camilla Amundsen, head of fixed network and TV at Telenor.
Norwegians now consume as much streaming content as linear content. In 2021, Norwegian TV viewers used an average of 3.2 streaming services, an increase on the 2.5 recorded in 2019, according to a study by Kantar conducted on behalf of Telenor.
“With Telenor T-We, TV viewers get all the entertainment in one place, and customers can choose streaming services and channels at no extra cost. Customers bring their entertainment on phones, PC, iPad and other devices, and see the content whenever and wherever they want. With the T-We app, you can even watch TV as usual in the cabin without it costing anything extra via Apple TV or Chromecast,” Amundsen explains.
5G is being rolled out across Norway with the network likely to be completed by 2024. The antennas used by wireless broadband has been optimised for 5G, meaning that the antenna need not be switched when moving from 4G to 5G service.
