Swedish 5G subscriptions make up 3% of all mobile contracts in H1, overall mobile data traffic up 33%

Thursday 25 November 2021 | 14:35 CET | News
Swedish communications regulator PTS said in its report for the first half of 2021 that data traffic on the 5G network went up from 6 Terabytes to 1,572 TB within one year. This was a sharp increase but it still only constitutes a small fraction of total data traffic. There were 386,000 subscriptions using 5G networks, which corresponds to 3 percent of all mobile subscriptions.
