Report to the European Commission and BEREC according to regulation (EU) 2015/2120

SUMMARY

This report examines the different networks in Sweden and explains that the domestic market for internet access services is highly accessible for end-users, for both fixed and mobile broadband. 

The research gives an overview of the activities that the paper's publisher PTS has carried out between May 2018 to April 2019 intending to ensure that users in Sweden have access to open internet access following the TSM Regulation. This is the third net neutrality paper by PTS since the TSM Regulation was introduced.

According to this study, end-users’ access to the newest technologies in Sweden can be considered as good. Operators are investing important sums with the aim to meet a growing demand that looks for higher bandwidth and faster transmission speed.

The paper indicates that Sweden has four main operators in the market for internet access services. The mobile broadband market can be described as more concentrated compared to the fixed broadband market, which presents more local and regional networks operators. After the merger between Tele2 and Com Hem in 2018 the large network operators were reduced to four. Telia, Telenor, and Tele2 operate on the fixed and mobile broadband markets and Tre is present just on the market for mobile broadband, the paper explains.

The report adds that Sweden presented a 76 percent geographical coverage of 4G networks by the end of 2018, which covers nearly all of the population.
