Sweden has a mature mobile market with a high proportion of subscribers on LTE networks.

The incumbent provider Telia is preparing to launch 5G services during 2018, which would be one of the first such services globally.
A significant proportion of mobile subscribers make use of mobile broadband as a viable alternative to fixed-line broadband services. The market has been enervated by greater consumer take-up for mobile data services as competition has forced down prices. With the closing down of the analogue network, spectrum in the 900MHz bands has been put to use for mobile services, while spectrum in the 800MHz and 1800MHz bands is also providing MNOs with additional capabilities for their LTE networks. Additional spectrum, particularly in the 450MHz and 700MHz bands, is to be made available during 2018. The government and regulator are working on strategies to improve broadband services nationally by 2025, and these are largely focussed on the provision of upgraded LTE and 5G technologies.

Key developments:
Hi3G contracts Ericsson to upgrade network and prepare for 5G;
Regulator aiming to make 400MHz of 3.4-3.8GHz band available for 5G in 2019;
Tele2 and Telia to phase out 3G services by 2025;
H3G and Telia using NB-IoT networks for smart metering programs;
H3G secures remaining block of spectrum in the 1800MHz band;
Regulator proposes releasing up to 1.2GHz of spectrum for 5G trial licenses;
Telenor launches tri-band LTE to provide data at up to 450Mb/s;
Telia trials LTE providing up to 757Mb/s;
Telia signs up for Ericsson M2M platform;
MNOs launch mobile wallet service joint venture;
Report update includes the regulator’s market data to June 2017, telcos’ operating and financial data to Q1 2018, recent market developments.
