Denmark’s Norlys furthers national reach ambition with Fibia deal

norlys stofa fibiaDanish energy and telecom company Norlys is close to achieving national reach for its TV and internet service provider Stofa after striking a deal with Zealand fibre operator Fibia to provide its services to 500,000 homes served by Fibia’s network.

Norlys already supplies TV and internet to 850,000 households, and now has access to 350,000 households in Zealand and Lolland-Falster, while the remaining 150,000 households on Fibia’s network are in Jutland.

Some of the larger cities on Fibia’s Zealand network include Køge, Roskilde, Slagelse and Holbæk, while in Jutland they include Aarhus, Horsens, Hedensted and Grenaa.

“With this agreement, we will become seriously visible on Zealand, which we have long wanted. It also means that we are now very close to fulfilling our ambition to be able to sell TV and internet to the whole of Denmark,” Sune Nabe Frederiksen, director of Norlys’ digital business.

Norlys has been expanding its reach steadily, most notably recently with its deal in April to acquire the Danish operation of Telia for DKK6.25 billion (€838 million), financed by the sale of a minority share of its own fibre bsuheiunss last year.

Norlys is also been offering its TV service as a standalone service nationwide, including off-net, since the start of June.

The company said at the time that it had truck new agreements with content suppliers that mean it can now provide a complete TV line-up via the Norlys Play app on a standalone basis.

Previously, the app was only available to customers who also had cable or antenna TV from Norlys.
