Sweden has one of the most developed markets for LTE services. The regulator ‘s plan to auction spectrum in the 700MHz band at the end of 2016 will further augment the quality of services and extend the availability of mobile broadband in remote areas. A significant proportion of mobile subscribers now make use of LTE services, which for many customers provide a viable alternative to fixed-line broadband. 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 450MHz and 900MHz bands has been put to digital use to provide a national mobile broadband service. Spectrum in the 800MHz and 1800MHz bands is also providing MNOs with additional capabilities for their LTE networks.
