    Telenor is awesome, i’ve been a loyal customer of Telenor since 2006 (nearly 6 years) but their EDGE service is getting bad day by day.

    love them or hate them, fact is that they are doing exceptionally good business over here, better than other telcos over here.

    At the end of the day, its the company growth that matters, sadly some people over here fail to see the bigger picture and always crib about poor network and petty things like call rates. Word of advice for them, get port out n u will send same issues over there as well!
