Denmark - Broadband Market Insights, Statistics and Forecasts


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

Denmark has the highest broadband penetration in the world, the result of excellent cable and DSL infrastructure and progressive regulatory regime which has encouraged operator access to both copper and fibre networks. Although fibre networks as yet have only a small footprint, a number of community and metropolitan schemes have supplemented TDC’s commitments. Unusually within Europe, Denmark has focussed on FttH architecture rather than FttB. This report provides a comprehensive overview of the latest developments and statistics in Denmark’s fixed and wireless broadband markets, including subscriber forecasts to 2020.

Key developments:

Continuing growth in fibre network roll-outs; government increases national upload speed to 30Mb/s by 2020; regulator’s H1 2012 market data update; telcos’ operating and financial data to Q4 2012; market developments to April 2013.Companies mentioned in this report include:TDC, TeliaSonera, Telenor, Stofa, YouSee, Canal Digital Denmark, TRE-FOR, NRGI. Clearwire, ButlerNetworks, ECI Telecom, Nordisk Mobiltelefon, FastTV.
