that occasion Managing Director, Nina Wahl
Asmussen gave the promise that butlerNetworks
would be airborne no later than 1. March, a

connection. But even with redundancy in our
cables we are not guaranteed against cables

customer for butlerNetworks and within few

Dubex is a good example of the target group
and the possibilities of FWA says Nina Wahl
Asmussen. It is companies with a need for
transmitting data, voice and video and
consequently needs large capacities. Companies
whose needs have increased and may very well
continue to do so and via FWA can get stable
connections they can tune to higher capacities
