Company Overview

ICE (ice) is a mobile network operator operating in Norway. The company began operations in 2003 as Nordisk Mobiltelefon and operated a 450 MHz long range CDMA network in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. In February 2009 the company was acquired by US-based Access Industries following financial difficulties. The Swedish and Danish operations were rebranded to Net 1, and Norway continued to operate under the ice brand.

In June 2015 ice converted its ageing 450 MHz service into an LTE B31 (450 MHz) network. Following the sale of Tele2 to Telia in 2015, the Norwegian Competition Authority stipulated that a roaming agreement be established to permit ice to roam onto the Telia network. Under the fair-competition agreement Tele2's Network Norway infrastructure was to be sold to ice, allowing the company to offer 2G GSM and 3G UMTS services.

Having held unused spectrum since December 2013, ice has progressively deployed B3 (1800 MHz), B8 (900 MHz), and B20 (800 MHz) services across the country.
