Fibre expansion could boost Skane, Blekinge tax revenue

Friday 27 January 2017 | 13:39 CET | News
Expanding the fibre-optic network in the counties of Skane and Blekinge could lead to the creation of 166 businesses and more than 21,000 jobs, according to an analysis commissioned by Skane County Council from research institute RISE Acreo. The Swedish Broadband Forum said tax revenue could increase by SEK 1.68 billion, too, and the two counties could save between SEK 469 million and SEK 639 million per year on home help services.
