Norwegian telecoms firm Telenor is cutting back again, this time at divisions in Gjøvik and at company headquarters at Fornebu, west of Oslo. The goal is to cut costs and make operations more efficient.

The company announced this week that its “Fixed & TV” division in Gjøvik will be shut down, with a loss of 23 jobs. The company will also cut staffing at its “Mobile” division at Fornebu, eliminating another 56 employees.

Telenor blamed the job losses on a need for reorganization of divisions handling mobile communications, permanent land-based phone lines and TV. staff
