2014-01-09 08:35:03 - Sweden Telecommunications Report Q1 2014 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Sweden´s status as one of the most advanced markets in the world is evidenced by its leading position in M2M connections and the growth of LTE over the past year. Data from PTS show that LTE subscription growth is coming at the expense of 3G, as users are increasingly looking to migrate up to the higher capacity and faster speed technology. As a more expensive service this bodes well for data usage ARPU and the expansion of value-added services (VAS). In the wireline sector this is matched by a 15.7% rise in the number of fibre connections in the year to June 2013. The acquisition of Tele2´s fixed broadband assets by Telenor should give the latter increased scope in the
Swedish market, although the ongoing decline of the fixed telelphony sector continues to weigh on operators.
The latest operator data for Q313 show that the market reached 14.535mn users for a penetration rate of 151.9%.
LTE subscription growth accelerated in H212 and H113, coinciding with the arrival of a wider range of LTE-enabled handsets reaching 811,000.
Growth in fixed broadband subscriptions is heavily weighted to higher speed technologies such as fibre, with subscriptions up 15.7% y-o-y to 1.103mn at the end of H113. Meanwhile DSL and cable subscriptions declined over the course of 2012.
Total M2M connections rose to 4.545mn in H113, up from 3.394 y-o-y. Rise in revenues and traffic bode well for this segment.
