PTS says municipal networks should be allowed to expand into neighbouring boroughs without own grid

Friday 29 June 2018 | 13:27 CET | News
Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS is recommending an exemption from the localisation principle to allow municipal networks to build fibre grids in border areas in other boroughs that lack access to fibre. Its proposal comes after the government gave it the task of examining local councils' role in the broadband market, which led to PTS sending out questionnaires to metro grids and to boroughs without a local network.
