EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Sweden completes 5G spectrum auction

Sweden's telecom market includes mature mobile and broadband sectors which have been stimulated by the progressive investment of the main telcos in developing new technologies. The country retains one of the best developed LTE infrastructures in the region, while its MNOs have benefited from the January 2021 auction of spectrum in the 3.5GHz band which will enable them to expand services nationally.

The country also has one of the highest fibre broadband penetration rates in Europe. The focus of FttP is aimed at fulfilling the government's target of providing a 1Gb/s service to 98% of the population by 2025. The methodology to achieve this has rested on regulatory measures supported by public funds, as well as on the auction of spectrum in different bands.

In the fixed-line broadband segment, the number of DSL subscribers is falling steadily as customers continue to migrate to fibre networks. There is also competition from HFC infrastructure, with the main cableco Com Hem, now owned by Tele2, offering fibre-based broadband and investing in services based on the DOCSIS3.1 standard.

This report assesses key aspects of the Swedish telecom market, providing data on fixed network services and profiling the main players. It also reviews the key regulatory issues, including interconnection, local loop unbundling, number portability, carrier preselection and NGN open access. The report also analyses the mobile market, providing data on network operators and their strategies in a highly competitive environment. In addition, the report considers the fixed and fixed-wireless broadband markets, including analyses of market dynamics and the main operators, as well as providing subscriber forecasts.

Key developments:
  • Telecom sector revenue showed continued slight decline;
  • Telia sells out of Turkcell Holdings;
  • Fixed-line telephony penetration continues downward slide;
  • Regulator completes 3.5GHz and 2.3GHz spectrum auction;
  • Tele2 and Telia to phase out 3G services by 2025;
  • Government promotes new broadband strategy to 2025;
  • Report update includes the regulator's market data to June 2020, telcos' operating and financial data to Q4 2020, recent market developments.
