Sweden - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses
Sweden’s telecom market includes mature mobile and broadband sectors which have been stimulated by the progressive investment of the main telcos in developing new technologies. The country retains one of the best developed LTE infrastructures in the region, while its network operators will be well positioned to expand services based on 5G once additional spectrum is made available to them in early 2020.
The country also has one of the highest fibre broadband penetration rates in Europe and is aiming to provide a 1Gb/s broadband service to 98% of the population by 2025. The methodology to achieve this rests on regulatory measures supported by public funds, as well as on the auction of spectrum.
This report assesses key aspects of the Swedish telecom market, providing data on fixed network services and profiling the main players. It also reviews the key regulatory issues, including interconnection, local loop unbundling, number portability, carrier preselection and NGN open access.
