Out of curiosity, in Norway, who owns the copper? What is your
revenue/lease cost ratio?

off-list if too far off topic. I'm just curious.

I'm about the Toronto Canada area, and I'm just looking at the rough
lease cost per km. Be interesting to see if the same figure shows up
elsewhere, or, for all I know, perhaps not all countries have a single
'owner' of the copper...
