Sweden Broadband Market - Overview, Analysis & Statistics Report
Sweden has one of the most developed Internet and broadband markets in the EU. Almost 6.7 million Swedes are regular users of the Internet, making the country one of the most online nations in Europe. Sweden’s Internet market is migrating rapidly from dial-up to various modes of broadband access. Broadband penetration approached 15% in early 2005, with high levels of DSL, cable modem, satellite, and fixed wireless adoption. Metro Ethernet, fibre, WLAN and powerline communication (BPL) access technologies are also available. In the mobile field, 3G services are available from four operators. See table of contents and report summary.

Sweden Convergence - Triple Play & Digital TV Report
Sweden has one of Europe’s highest broadband penetration levels, and has invested heavily in DSL and fibre upgrades. There are two public broadcast channels, SVT1 and SVT2, and one commercial channel TV4 that must be carried on all platforms. The largest cable TV operators are Com hem, Kabelvision, and UPC Sweden. Transmissions of digital terrestrial TV began in 1999, and more than 98% of Swedes can access DTT. There are several commercial satellite channels, including TV3, Channel 5, TV6, ZTV, and TV8. A range of interactive TV services is available, from basic electronic program guides to developing TV-commerce services. This report provides an overview of Sweden’s digital convergence in 2005, including recent developments in Video-on-Demand (VoD), triple play and VoIP services, together with an overview of the Free-to-Air TV, pay TV and digital TV markets.

Swedish Telecom Market - Key Statistics & Regulatory Overviews
Sweden has a small but mature telecom market. Mobile phone penetration is among the highest in Europe, and broadband penetration is twice the EU average. Regular Internet users are edging towards 70% of the population. This report introduces the key aspects of the Swedish telecom market in 2005, providing the latest data on fixed network services, the Internet, and the broadband and mobile phone sectors. Sweden is in the front rank of countries in many advanced network technologies, including xDSL, fibre networks, and GSM and UMTS mobile networks.

Sweden Mobile Market - Overview & Statistics Report
Sweden has one of the smaller and more advanced mobile markets in Europe. Growth and penetration levels far exceed the EU average, largely driven by prepaid cards which represent nearly half of all customers. The single analogue network run by Telia is winding down, while four GSM networks are licensed. Competition is strong, particularly between Telia and Tele2, while MVNOs have a stable presence. 3G services started in 2003, though take-up has been slow. This report provides statistics and research on the Swedish mobile market in 2005, including the key regulatory issues and the growth of mobile data services such as SMS. See table of contents here
