Swedish 2012 broadband map shows rise in LTE, fibre uptake

Tuesday 19 March 2013 | 13:07 CET | News
Swedish postal and telecommunications regulator PTS said that by October 2012, 93 percent of homes and businesses in the country had access to broadband via LTE, up from 48 percent in October 2011. The PTS broadband map (Bredbandskartan) shows that 53 percent of homes and businesses were able to access broadband at a theoretical speed of at least 100 Mbps, up 4 percentage points from October 2011, thanks entirely to fibre roll-outs. The number of homes and business without any access whatsoever to broadband at a minimum speed of 1 Mbps has fallen to about 500.
