Ah, "social democracy". Where they do what's "best for you", not what you want.
As opposed to the US, where government does neither what you want nor what is best for you, but whatever the highest bidder pays them to do?
The negative public opinion of DAB in Norway is the result of a massive anti-DAB propaganda campaign orchestrated by a single man, Per Morten Hoff, who heads an ICT lobbying group. I don't know for sure what his motivation is. Perhaps he sees DAB as a competitor to streaming over the cellular network, which would benefit some of his constituents. Then again, Norway's larges cellular provider (Telenor) also owns and operates a significant portion of the national radio broadcasting network, and is a strong proponent of DAB.
Note that Norwegian radio stations—at least the ones I listen to—are in favor of DAB.
