Sweden has a mature mobile market with a high proportion of subscribers on LTE networks. The incumbent provider Telia is preparing to launch 5G services during 2018, which would be one of the first such services globally.
A significant proportion of mobile subscribers make use of mobile broadband as a viable alternative to fixed-line broadband services. The market has been enervated by greater consumer take-up for mobile data services as competition has forced down prices. With the closing down of the analogue network, spectrum in the 900MHz bands has been put to use for mobile services, while spectrum in the 800MHz and 1800MHz bands is also providing MNOs with additional capabilities for their LTE networks. Additional spectrum, particularly in the 450MHz and 700MHz bands, is to be made available during 2018. The government and regulator are working on strategies to improve broadband services nationally by 2025, and these are largely focussed on the provision of upgraded LTE and 5G technologies.

As usual, you’ve done a splendid job of bringing an industry well and truly into the spotlight.
I think that without your input and passion, Australia would have barely scratched the surface of the benefits that can and will be achieved with the wholesale adoption of Smart Grid and Smart City concepts.
