Norwegian cable operator Get has added mobile broadband to its product portfolio. The company has signed a MNVO (Mobile Network Virtual Operator) agreement with Telenor, which will carry the traffic over its network.
A mobile broadband subscription has been bundled in with Get’s existing broadband products; M 20, L 50, XL 100, XL 200. Other customers can subscribe to mobile broadband for a monthly NOK 49 (€6.27).
“Surveys show that customers want to see Get deliver complete services, and the top of the wish list is mobile broadband. Mobile services are increasingly important, and this is the first step on the way for customers to use their Get services even when they are on the move,” says Gunnar Evensen, CEO of Get.
Initially Get is offering a micro SIM card that can be used with the iPad and Android devices, and a USB modem, which connects to laptops. Later Get plans to launch a mobile wireless router with SIM card that allows customers to share their mobile broadband through a local wireless network.
