With a total population of around 5.7 million in 2028 and an online penetration rate of 93.0% across the country, Norway maintains an extremely high level of internet accessibility and adoption.

Norwegian internet users spent an average of 5 hours and 46 minutes per day online in 2023. Notably, 51.4% of this total daily internet time was accounted for by mobile devices, highlighting the substantial role of smartphones and tablets in Norway's digital landscape.

Mobile connectivity is also widespread in Norway. In early 2024, there were 6.06 million cellular mobile connections, exceeding the population count. This indicates that many Norwegians likely have multiple mobile connections, perhaps one for personal use and another for work.
