Denmark has one of the highest broadband penetration rates in the world, the result of excellent cable and DSL infrastructure and progressive regulatory regime which has encouraged operator access to both copper and fibre networks. Fibre networks have a fast-growing footprint, while a number of community and metropolitan schemes have supplemented TDC’s own commitments to build out fibre. In late 2017 the regulator reviewed wholesale access regulations imposed on TDC’s fibre infrastructure in areas where alternative operators have also built networks, and thus where there is effective competition. The development of VDSL and fibre is crucial to meeting the government’s objective for all premises to have access to a 100Mb/s service by 2020. In addition, TDC is also investing in DOSCIS3.1 technology for its YouSee branded cable broadband offer. The network upgrade, expected to be completed by the end of 2017, will provide a 1Gb/s data service to about 65% of premises.
This report provides a comprehensive overview of the latest developments and statistics in Denmark’s fixed and fixed-wireless broadband markets, including subscriber forecasts.
TDC extends the reach of its DOCSIS3.1 service, providing 1Gb/s downloads; continuing growth in fibre network roll-outs; TDC advances with vectoring VDSL trials; shift in broadband subscriptions from fixed-line to mobile networks; government increases minimum national upload speed to 30Mb/s by 2020; report update includes the regulator’s market data update for 2016, telcos’ operating and financial data to Q2 2017, recent market developments.

Just a quick note to say thank for your helpful reports. I`ve used them a couple of times over the years and I found your talk at CeBIT, very interesting indeed.
