EUROPEAN VOIP RESEARCH SERVICE SWEDEN
Service providers first introduced VoIP to Sweden in 2002, but it wasn’t until 2005 that
VoIP services gained broad acceptance. VoIP subscriber numbers continue to grow, but at a
slower rate than 2007. VoIP increased 18 percent in 2008, from 623,000 to 735,000,
compared to 52 percent the previous year. Residential subscribers dominate the market,
accounting for over 96 percent of the VoIP lines in service. Approximately 17 percent of
Swedish households subscribe to an IP telephony service.
