Few Swedish politicians back rebates for fibre connections

Wednesday 2 July 2014 | 13:35 CET | News
Swedish metro grid association SSNf (Svenska Stadsnatsforeningen) said only 16 percent of parliamentary candidates support measures such as rebate to encourage fibre broadband connections to detached houses. The cost of linking up a small house varies from SEK 7,000 to SEK 70,000 and the average is SEK 17,000, almost the same as the disposable monthly income of the household. SSNf said PTS found in a 2013 survey that only one in ten households was prepared to pay more than SEK 10,000 to obtain a faster connection.
