Investment slowdown may hit Swedish broadband target

Wednesday 3 May 2017 | 11:59 CET | News
Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS predicts that the government's goal of having 100 Mbps broadband access for 95 percent of homes and businesses by 2020 could be missed. Barriers to continuing the current rate investment must be removed, the watchdog said. It currently predicts an access rate of 91-94 percent by 2020, based on the most probable investment level.
