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 MNOs have benefited from the January 2021 auction of spectrum in the 3.5GHz band which will enable them to expand services nationally.
The country also has one of the highest fibre broadband penetration rates in Europe. The focus of FttP is aimed at fulfilling the government’s target of providing a 1Gb/s service to 98% of the population by 2025. The methodology to achieve this has rested on regulatory measures supported by public funds, as well as on the auction of spectrum in different bands.
In the fixed-line broadband segment, the number of DSL subscribers is falling steadily as customers continue to migrate to fibre networks. There is also competition from HFC infrastructure, with the main cableco Com Hem, now owned by Tele2, offering fibre-based broadband and investing in services based on the DOCSIS3.1 standard.
