BMI’s 2010 report on Sweden’s telecommunications industry contains updated growth forecasts for the development of the country’s mobile, fixed-line, broadband, internet and 3G subscriber markets over the next five years. Our forecasts, which have been extended to the end of 2014, are based on H109 regulatory data, as well as year-end data published by Sweden’s leading telecoms service providers; these include the country’s incumbent operator TeliaSonera, as well as Sweden-based pan-European operator Tele2, Norwegian incumbent operator Telenor and 3G-only operator HI3G Access Sweden, which is owned by Hong Kong’s Hutchison Whampoa.

At the end of 2009, Sweden’s mobile network operators were estimated to serve more than 12mn subscribers. This is equivalent to a penetration rate of 131.3%. During 2009, the country’s mobile subscriber base grew by 5.3%. Growth was much weaker than in 2008, when the sector expanded by 10.1%. In addition to having an increasingly saturated market, the slower growth in 2009 reflected the deduction of inactive mobile customers by Sweden’s mobile operators. Meanwhile, the operators continue to report growth in the number of contract customers and 3G subscribers on their networks. In order to support the demand for mobile broadband services, Sweden’s cellcos have been investing in the deployment of ‘fourth generation’ (4G) networks based LTE technology. In December 2009, TeliaSonera launched the world’s first commercial LTE mobile services in Stockholm. The operator has already begun extending its network nationally and plans to cover 25 Swedish cities with its network by the end of 2010. Meanwhile, in December 2009, it was reported that Net4Mobility, a joint venture established by Tele2 and Telenor Sweden, contracted China’s Huawei Technologies to supply and deploy network equipment and modems for the launch of 4G LTE mobile broadband services across the country, aiming for commercial launch in 2010.

Although the number of mobile telephony customers in Sweden continues to grow, the market for traditional fixed-line services based on PSTN and ISDN technology has been shrinking. The Swedish fixed-line market declined at a record rate of around 3.4% in 2009. The demise of the fixed-line sector has been driven by the growing use of substitute services such as VoIP and mobile broadband. The rate of decline would be faster were it not for operator tendencies to bundle fixed-line telephony as part of tripleplay service packages. In 2009, the growing popularity of mobile broadband services contributed to an increase of almost 15% in the number of broadband subscribers. By the end of 2009, Sweden’s broadband penetration rate is thought to have risen to more than 47%, one of the highest in Europe. Sweden sits in fifth position in BMI’s Business Environment Ratings of Western Europe’s telecoms markets. Sweden has one of the most mature telecoms markets in Europe, a factor which has both positive and negative bearings on Sweden’s Telecoms Market score.
