Swedish operators report more service disruptions in 2017 but same number of privacy breaches

Tuesday 3 July 2018 | 12:30 CET | News
Swedish communications regulator PTS has published its operational security report and its confidential communications report for 2017, covering the five largest operators. It said more incidents of disrupted operations were reported to PTS than in 2016, and most of these were caused by cables being dug up and by power cuts. The number of privacy breaches was unchanged.
