Considerable investments in ADSL2+ and fibre networks by Sweden’s telcos in recent years have provided the infrastructure for triple-play services to take off. The largest cable TV operators, Com Hem, Kabelvision, and UPC Sweden, have upgraded their networks to provide data at up to 100Mb/s, which has led to some migration from DSL. Switchover to digital transmission was completed in late 2007, providing the government with the first opportunity in Europe to make use of the digital dividend for wireless broadband services. This report provides an overview of Sweden’s digital convergence, including recent developments in VoD, triple play and VoIP services, together with an overview of the digital TV market and the development of digital switchover.
