  • 1993: With privatization follows also a regulated market to witch other than the only Telia could work. Regulations has evolved since.2010: Telia is obliged to offer some sort of phone connection. However the obligation is not pointed towards Cu. Many (rural) will have to do with “fixed mobile”
  • “Commercial?
  • Sweden has tested every technical solution there is (I think) and to say the least not all of them was meant to be.
  • Transcript

    • 1. Sweden Rural (and municipality) broadband Tobias Ahl, CEO, Rala NGN AB INCA London, November 2013
    • 2. A short time line 1993 Televerket privatized to Telia (Today TeliaSonera) 1994 STOKAB and other municipality owned telecom (infrastructure) companies were founded 1997 One of several changes in regulation aims to require fair and resonable costs for transport of traffic in networks 2001 Rala works with Pajala and 100 homes rural – a DIY rural project 2010 Telia starts to shut down the copper network 2013 SSnF includes 146 municipality networks present in 180 municipalities Tobias Ahl, CEO, Rala NGN AB INCA London, November 2013
    • 3. Driving forces Competition – In 1998 when the then left wing government started grants system, one important argument was to actively create competition to the incumbent! Both on infrastructure and operations as well as services level. Part of the world – wherever your municipality, home or company is situated “We do not want to wait” Offers from the incumbent made it viable with very short pay back time to build your own fibre routes. This drove municipalities to build fibre networks in order to connect schools and administration. Last three years – market drives deployment. Swedes can’t wait anymore! There’s a market dominance race going on. Tobias Ahl, CEO, Rala NGN AB INCA London, November 2013
    • 4. The Swedish Bredband story In many places The rural has more fibre than urban areas Pajala 3,137.07 sq mi 3 Below 6400 inhabitants (2010) That’s a staggering 2 per sq mi In 2001 Rala piloted fibre there in 2001 Jukkasjärvi is a neighbour village with about 540 citizens Installed Rala fibre systems in 2002 Rala designed, delivered and supported it’s first rural community broadband in 2001. They had 100/100 mbit at that time and by now even more if Tobias Ahl, CEO, Rala NGN AB they so choose. INCA London, November 2013
    • 5. How? Local ownership of infrastructure • Municipalities or ALMO’s (Utilities companies) • Housing associations • Some private initiatives A lot of Semi-DIY and variations to keep installation costs down Grant systems of various sorts (Swedish and European) Tobias Ahl, CEO, Rala NGN AB INCA London, November 2013
    • 6. Status today Latest evaluation and suggestions to improve effectiveness of grant systems came in may 2013 • Swedish digital agenda, target 2020: 90 percent should have access to at least 100 mbit • EU: 2020 everyone(?) should have access to 30 mbit • Sweden 2013: about 53 percent can have 100 mbit or more – about ¼ of them do also subscribe to it. • Sweden 2013: and we buy it and use it Tobias Ahl, CEO, Rala NGN AB INCA London, November 2013 “Most indications are that the importance of ultra fast broadband aren’t underestimated.”
    • 7. Tobias Ahl, CEO, Rala NGN AB INCA London, November 2013
    • 8. Issues? Not all infrastructure owners allow for fair and nondiscriminating access to the infrastructure they own (local loop unbundling if you like) by operators. A fair amount of low quality deployments. Grants should have quality evaluations before paid out but it’s been hard in practice. Open comes with many colors. Now the term is very hard to actually define. In infrastructure – 10 years is nothing. Now some municipality networks are hunted by their own doings. Small scale prooves difficult in telecoms.
