Sweden - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses

NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Read the full report:

The country retains one of the best developed LTE infrastructures in the region, and is poised to be among the first in the world to deliver services based on the 5G standard. It also has one of the highest fibre broadband penetration rates in Europe. Indeed, 5G and FttP are being promoted by the government as part of an ambitious but realistic strategy to deliver a near-universal 1Gb/s service by 2025. The methodology to achieve this rests on proven regulatory measures supported by public funds, as well as on the auction of additional spectrum expected during 2018.

A significant proportion of mobile subscribers make use of mobile broadband as a viable alternative to fixed-line broadband services. Additional spectrum, particularly in the 450MHz and 700MHz bands, is to be made available during 2018.

In the broadband sector DSL remains the dominant platform though the number of subscribers is falling as customers migrate to fibre networks. Some resilience in the DSL sector is shown by operators investing in VDSL upgrades, though this is a short-term measure on the path to FttP. There is also competition from HFC infrastructure, with the main cableco Com Hem offering data rates at up to 1Gb/s on its fibre network. It is also investing in services based on the DOCSIS3.1 standard.

The fibre sector is among the most vibrant in the world, with the country now having one of the highest fibre-broadband densities in Europe. Further development of the fibre sector is key to the government's revised broadband strategy for 2025.
