Broadband Strategy Aiming For 90% Access To 100Mb/S Broadband By 2020

Sweden has fared better than most countries in weathering the region's ongoing economic downturn. GDP fell 5.3% in 2009 in the wake of the 2008 crisis, but recovered quickly, growing at some 5.5% in 2010 and 4% in 2011 before falling to an estimated 0.8% in 2012 as the region's economic difficulties weigh down on exports. Despite the economic climate, telecoms market revenue increased 3.8% in 2010 following a number of years during which growth was stagnant. Continued growth, albeit slow, is expected for 2012 and 2013. The market has continued the trend for consumer migration to mobile voice and data services at the expense of fixed-line telephony. More calls are now made via mobile networks than the fixed network, while there are almost as many mobile broadband subscriptions as there are via the copper network.
