PTS seeks operators' views on providing basic internet at 10 Mbps

Thursday 26 October 2017 | 15:14 CET | News
Almost 100 percent of homes and fixed business addresses in Sweden have some or other form of phone service and internet at a minimum of 1 Mbps, said watchdog PTS in its report 'Access to telephony and basic internet'. The government is changing the designation of basic internet service from 1 Mbps to 10 Mbps and so PTS is to set aside SEK 20 million per year for three years to help enable this better provision. The regulator will seek market views on steps that can be taken to meet this target.
