Denmark connected to Norway via a new cable system

Denmark has one of the highest broadband penetration rates globally, with a near universal availability of superfast connections. Extensive cable and DSL infrastructure has been supported by a 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 nationally. A number of wholesale fibre schemes have also added to the wider availability of fibre broadband.

The reach of LTE infrastructure is comprehensive, while the MNOs by mid-2022 also provided near universal population coverage with 5G. Services based on 5G were initially launched using trial 3.5GHz licences. The multi-spectrum auction held in April 2021 has enabled them to improve the resilience and capacity of 5G. At the same time, all MNOs are engaged in closing down their 3G networks and refarming spectrum for LTE and 5G use.

This report introduces the key aspects of the Danish telecom market, providing data on the fixed network services sector as well as profiles of the major operators.
