Norwegian telecom giant Telenor has selected Tata Consultancy Services Ltd to modernise its fixed-line network operations. The infrastructure services contract, which was signed on 24 June, is for four years.

"This is one of the largest change programmes in recent history for Telenor Norway. Our aim is to provide customers with better experiences, with improved quality and faster deliveries, while reducing costs," Berit Svendsen, chief executive of Telenor Norway said.

Telenor invests more than 4 billion Norwegian krones in infrastructure and services in Norway.

"As much as India emerges as a promising mass market opportunity for the Telenor Group, it is our endeavour to ensure that our international markets also open up for our Indian business partners. Our partnership with India should bring affordable services to subscribers in the country, global opportunities with us to Indian businesses and the benefits of the top-class competence and capabilities of these partners to the Telenor Group," said Sigve Brekke, Head of Telenor Asia operations.
