Marte is right on the money. In terms of speed, 5G outperformed 4G up to ten times during Telenor’s tests in Trondheim. It was no coincidence either that Marte’s home town was chosen to be the country’s first big city to see 5G open up commercially.
“Trondheim is the tech capital of Norway. The city is inhabited by a large population of tech savvy people. It consists of a vibrant startup and innovation community, as well as around 35,000 students and a big number of researchers. It is only natural for Telenor to start the roll out of 5G here. That being said, we have also opened up 5G in other locations in Norway,” says Bjørn Amundsen, Coverage Director of Telenor Norway.
In addition to Trondheim, Telenor has until now been running 5G pilot tests in Kongsberg, Elverum, Bodø, Askvoll, Kvitfjell, Longyearbyen, Fornebu and Spikersuppa in Oslo’s city centre.
“As long as you have a 5G supported device in one of these areas, you will as at Telenor customer be able to experience 5G connection,” says Amundsen.
