Cable operator Com Hem to compete on services over FTTH

Tuesday 30 October 2012 | 16:23 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
Com Hem, the biggest cable operator in Sweden, is planning to offer services over the Lunet fibre-optic network in Lulea. Com Hem was earlier spun off from incumbent Telia and later absorbed the UPC Sweden activities. It's now owned by BC Partners and operates cable service in Lulea. The company has connected around 40 percent of Swedish households, or around 1.7 million homes. Lunet is rolling out a FTTH network in the city, on which a variety of service providers are already active, including Telia, Tele2, CanalDigital and Viasat.
