Swedish communications regulator PTS said that in the first half of 2020, both data traffic and voice calls on the mobile networks grew faster than previously, presumably as coronavirus restrictions caused people to go about their business and personal affairs remotely. Mobile data traffic went up by 31 percent, compared with 23 percent in the previous period. The number of voice minutes climbed by 11 percent, which was the fastest growth in many years.
