Swedish mobile network growth slows in 2018, broadband expansion treads water

Thursday 28 March 2019 | 12:52 CET | News
The pace of Swedish mobile network growth slowed down last year and broadband expansion was in line with 2017 but was below the year before, according to communications regulator PTS. In a report based on readings taken in October 2018, PTS said 81 percent of homes and businesses in Sweden had access to internet at 100 Mbps, up by 4 percentage points from 2017. This compares with the government's 2020 target of 95 percent.
