The high-speed mobile broadband network with a minimum speed of 10 Mbps now covers 77 percent of Swedish territory, up by 26 percentage points. By October 2015, nearly every residence in Sweden had the opportunity to get wireless broadband over a 4G network, although sometimes, customers need an external antenna.
