Executive Summary

Denmark’s TDC to complete DOCSIS3.1 deployment by 2017

Denmark has benefited from a competitive telecom market which has led to the country having Europe’s highest broadband penetration rate and one of the highest penetration rates in the mobile sector. The fixed-line sector continues to lose revenue and customers as more people forego fixed phones for VoIP and mobile-only solutions.

Growth in the mobile market has been stimulated by consumer demand for data services, and this is set to continue strongly during the next few years as telcos are able to make use of additional spectrum in the 1800MHz band expected to be auctioned in 2016. In addition, the ITU’s November 2015 decision to set aside 700MHz digital dividend spectrum for mobile broadband will enable the regulator to auction these assets as well, so improving access to broadband in rural areas. All four main operators – TDC Mobile, Telenor Denmark, Telia and Hi3G – have launched LTE- Advanced services, and have deployed carrier aggregation technologies to make better use of their spectrum assets.

There is excellent cable and DSL infrastructure in place, and effective competition between the platforms in most areas. A progressive regulatory regime has encouraged operator access to both copper and fibre networks. Fibre has a fast-growing footprint. TDC’s network of vectored VDSL lines has been available to ISPs on a wholesale basis since early 2015. In addition, TDC is also investing in DOSCIS3.1 technology for its YouSee branded cable broadband offer. With the work expected to be completed in 2017, YouSee will provide a 1Gb/s data service to about 65% of premises in the country. These developments will help realise the government’s objective for all premises to have access to services of at least 100Mb/s by 2020.

This report introduces the key aspects of the Danish telecom market, presenting comprehensive data on the fixed network services sector and profiles of the major operators. It also analyses market statistics and assesses the key regulatory issues including interconnection, local loop unbundling, number portability and carrier preselection. In addition the report reviews the latest developments in the mobile voice and data markets, including an analysis of regulatory issues. The broadband market is analysed, with statistics on the DSL, cable and fibre sectors used as a basis for analysing the market’s developments and likely scenario to 2020.
