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.

"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.

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.
