Since 2015 Bane NOR and Bulk Infrastructure have collaborated on larger fiber systems along the Norwegian railways connecting Oslo, Kristiansand, Stavanger and Bergen. The reason for the collaboration has been to improve the fiber coverage along the railway and connect Norway’s largest cities with dark fiber.
Recently the parties entered an agreement to further develop and expand their relationship with a data center agreement.
The parties have agreed not to share any other details other than the agreement has a duration of up to 30 years.
