EU vetoes Swedish wholesale fibre regulation, calls for more analysis of regional differences

Tuesday 11 February 2020 | 09:40 CET | News

PTS had concluded that there is one single, national market. The commission, by contrast, says wholesale prices vary around the country, and there is no evidence of either demand or supply substitutability between operators.
