Organization: Norsk Telecom AS (market analyst company)(Business)
After 6 years in Arthur Andersen & Co (now Accenture) and another 6 years in construction/real estate - my telco background started in 1992, when I was appointed the CFO of Norway's first private (GSM) telecom operator (NetCom GSM as). Since then I have worked for several other telecom companies, until I in 1999 founded Norske Telecom AS.
Norsk Telecom AS (Norwegian Telecom Inc) - www.teleinfo.no - is an independent Norwegian based corporation that produces market analysis on and about the Norwegian telecom market. This information is presented through comprehensive reports under the label TeleInfo. Norsk Telecom AS was established in 1999.

From various discussions in this forum, and other places around the globe, it seems like the rolling out of hi speed internet (preferably by rolling out fibre) needs additional gov't funding to take place.
I wonder - can we have some examples of profitable fibre operators?? What are they doing right - and what should other fibre operators do to become (more) profitable? What are the KPIs (Key Perfomance Indicators...) for these operators on for instance..:
In many broadband discussions it seems like it is taken for granted, that there is an enormous and unquestionable need for hi speed broadband "everywhere" and for "everyone" - and that the key goal therefore is to roll out hi speed/fibre based broadband as fast as possible. This view is heavily supported by the operators, and their "friends".
In many broadband discussions it seems like it is taken for granted, that there is an enormous and unquestionable need for hi speed broadband 'everywhere' - and that the key goal is to roll out hi speed/fibre based broadband as fast as possible.
In Norway, two studies have been released in 2012 - both taking a critical examination of the "hi speed services" - and the actual "need for speed".
One of the studies was conducted by Norsk Telecom AS - a company which I am involved in..:
I believe the CapEx (capital expenditure) figures for rolling out hi speed broadband will vary substantially based on...
* the speed requirement (what speed do you really need - for the services that are used and will be used tomorrow?)
* the country in question (geography, population and cost level will heavily influence on the chosen roll out solution)
* the chosen technique (DSL, cable, fibre or mobile broadband)
I believe it is of utmost importance to have a solid grip on these factors and figures before jumping to roll out conclusions.
