Sweden’s low prices; market day in April
Swedish postal and telecoms regulator, PTS, has reported that the prices in Sweden for telephony and broadband are low compared with the rest of the world. In the report, ‘Price developments for mobile telephony and broadband 2015’, Sweden is said to have the lowest price of the cheapest offers out of all countries when it came to fixed broadband (at least 100 Mbps), the second cheapest mobile phone subscription (Finland is in first place), and the cheapest offer for an average user (at least 10 GB per month) for stand-alone mobile broadband. All this puts Sweden in fourth place, up from ninth place the year before. PTS has also carried out a study of the cost is to connect a detached house to the fibre network, and has determined a median price. See bit.ly/1Rf4j87
