The mobile phone is increasingly a tool for improving people’s lives. Telenor believes that the mobile phone can help transform the lives of individuals- allowing financial inclusion, access to knowledge, and making health services affordable and accessible for all. From this, societies are empowered to grow and progress. Bringing the benefits of mobile communication to a wider audience is one of Telenor’s key objectives. This is what Telenor calls “Enable”.
