Sweden - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses
Sweden’s telecom market includes mature mobile and broadband sectors which were among the first in Europe to deploy advanced technologies. The country retains one of the best developed LTE infrastructures in the region, and is poised to be among the first in the world to deliver services based on the 5G standard. It also has one of the highest fibre broadband penetration rates in Europe. Indeed, 5G and FttP are being promoted by the government as part of an ambitious but realistic strategy to deliver a near-universal 1Gb/s service by 2025. The methodology to achieve this rests on proven regulatory measures supported by public funds, as well as on the auction of additional spectrum expected during 2018.
