In the latest upset, several 2G and 650 Internet several customers in Gloppen, Eid, Bremanger, Selje, and Vågsøy in the Sogn og Fjordane region had to wait for up to nine hours yesterday for normal service to be restored.

Telenor press spokesperson Atle Lessum told NRK the problem was due to a faulty card in one of their network centres, which started at approximately 5:30 a.m.

“Simply-speaking, one could say people who use the 2G network, i.e. typically those with older mobile phones are experiencing reduced coverage.The mobile network is constructed to overlap, so they will get through if they try several times,” he said.

Arguing Saturday’s problems were far from comparable to the two major incidents in June, Mr Lessum maintained, “I understand that people feel the need to connect these failures, but this is a fault that occurs from time to time. Nevertheless, it’s obvious there has been more focus on this since the major problems we had a while ago.”  

The issue was resolved at 2:40 p.m. after technicians installed a new card.
