AINMT is an international telecommunications company. Its focus is wireless data communication services, the fastest growing business segment within the telecom sector. Its unique business model, with focus on low frequency bands, allows the company to offer wireless broadband to large geographical areas while maintaining an effective network infrastructure.
Low frequencies have long reach and require fewer base stations to cover large areas. This is a perfect match for rural districts, areas with varied topography and markets with underdeveloped telecommunication infrastructure. Altogether, this allows for high quality wireless data communication at a very low cost per bit. In Norway, where the company owns higher frequency bands, we also offer a full range of mobile services without having legacy networks to maintain and support.
Today, AINMT has license coverage to reach 380 million people worldwide. The company is already well established in Scandinavia and has developed partnerships in Indonesia and the Philippines. It is actively pursuing international expansion opportunities, aiming to satisfy the pent-up demand for internet access and data consumption in developing countries.
AINMT's majority owner is Access Industries, a privately held industrial group with long-term holdings worldwide. Its industrial focus spans four sectors: naural resources and chemicals; media and telecommunications; technology and e-commerce; and real estate.
