           Telenor : Dipper to simplify rules in the mobile market

(Oslo,Norway, Jan 29, 2013) Dipper is a new Norwegian mobile company that
caters to theabout 1.1 million employees who work for small and medium-sized
businesses. Dipper believes in customer relationships based on trust and
promises low prices to all, Telenor's coverage, good customer service and
absolutely no lock-in periods for mobile subscriptions.

Small and medium-sized companies with less than 100 employees in Norway
account for more than 40 percent of the country's value creation and form the
backbone of the Norwegian economy in many ways.

"When you run a small or medium-sized company, most of your time is spent on
working hard to please your own customers. Hence it is important to choose a
mobile company that promises secures you its best prices so that you can spend
time on things that mean something to you and your company," says Cecilie
Vanem, Dipper's managing director.

Easier everyday use
As the first mobile company in the business market, Dipper has removed lock-in
periods and violation fees for all subscriptions. In addition, the company
offers low prices to everyone, which means that customers instantly get the
best prices, without having to negotiate. The aim is that the customer should
not have to worry about surprises on his or her bill, and instead spend time
on what matters to the business.

"We have great respect for the dedication and perseverance it takes to run
small and medium-sized enterprises. For us, these are our most important and
attractive customers, and we look forward to providing them with the framework
and the service they deserve. The response from our first beta customers has
been good and it seems that many would welcome a new mobile company such as
Dipper to the market,"says Vanem.

Free as a bird
The goal for the new company is crystal clear. As a result of an attractive
subscription with no lock-in periods, Dipper wants customers who are so
satisfied, they want to recommend the company to others. On, the
company will make its clients visible and present some of the impressive
stories behind these small and medium-sized enterprises.

"By opting against binding and break-clause fees, we ensure that we always
have to work hard to deliver the best solutions, and that we must constantly
innovate to provide our customers real value for choosing to be Dipper
customers. We want customers to want to be with us, but if someone is not
satisfied they may of course go elsewhere - whenever they want,"says Vanem.

The name Dipper derives from a brave small bird that dives into ice cold water
at minus 20 degrees Celsius in the search for food to survive.

"Small and medium-sized businesses in Norway have the same traits. Some 99.5
percent of all Norwegian companies have fewer than 100 employees and these
enterprises are our heroes! They are brave and work to the fullest every day.
Dipper's aim is to have satisfied customers who always choose to land with us
even if they are free as a bird,"concludes Vanem.
