Swedish minister urges Com Hem to delay analogue switch-off because of Covid-19

Tuesday 8 September 2020 | 14:43 CET | News
Swedish Minister for Digitisation Anders Ygeman has said that Com Hem should suspend the rest of its analogue switch-off, in light of Covid-19. He told TV4 News that the operator could not have foreseen a pandemic coinciding with its digital migration, but the reasonable thing to do now would be to delay the transition until older people can receive home assistance.
