In addition, this crisis has led to a sizeable increase in voice and data traffic, higher demands for telecom services and considerable pressure on networks all over the world. The stakes are high, and growing.
It is Telenor’s commitment and responsibility to support you, your business and society at-large.
Today, Telenor is stepping up its contribution to societies in their fight against the effects of the Coronavirus. Telenor is highlighting four initiatives to contribute to its societies:
Continue its significant investments in secure and reliable networks, and offer added network coverage where needed
Offer mobility data analytics for health authorities to predict and prevent the spread of the virus
Encourage collaboration to secure children’s access to internet and education
Make selected online learning programmes and online security resources available for people and businesses
Continue its significant investments in secure and reliable networks, and offer-added network coverage where needed
Telenor is continuously investing in secure and reliable networks. This is now more important than ever as Telenor sees increasing load in our networks across all markets due to the crisis. Nordics reports an average 44 percent increase in daily voice volume and 12 percent in data volume since January. Developed Asia has a 5 percent voice traffic increase and 14 percent data increase in the same period.
Telenor will continue its significant investments despite the economic uncertainty created by COVID-19. This year we have committed to invest a significant amount in networks and infrastructure, ensuring Telenor’s ability to secure reliable and stable networks, maintain productivity and protect access to vital services.
Telenor provides connectivity support related to mission critical services. This includes offering and providing relevant coverage and capacities at locations such as hospitals, relief centres, police stations, key government offices, and connectivity for medical practitioners, enforcement personnel, and other parties on the frontlines of stemming the COVID-19 crisis.
