 Mo

Modalen is a municipality in the northern part of Hordaland. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Mo. The other main village is Øvre Helland. Modalen is very sparsely populated, in fact, only the municipality of Utsira has less inhabitants. Most of the residents of Modalen live in the main Modalen valley which extends eastwards from the end of the Romarheimsfjorden.

The small population, combined with a large income from hydro-electric power production, has given the municipality the ability to give all its residents free wireless internet access in the municipality. They also were the first Norwegian municipality to buy a computer for all students in the municipality in 1993.
