Denmark - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Denmark has one of the highest broadband penetration rates 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. Fibre networks have a fast-growing footprint, while a number of community and metropolitan schemes have supplemented TDC's own commitments to build out fibre. TDC's network of vectored VDSL lines has been available to ISPs on a wholesale basis since early 2015. This will go far towards realising the government's objective for all premises to have access to a 100Mb/s service by 2020. In addition, TDC is also investing in DOSCIS3.1 technology for its YouSee branded cable broadband offer. Expected to be completed in 2017, YouSee will provide a 1Gb/s data service to about 65% of premises in the country.

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:

TDC planning upgrade to DOCSIS3.1 standard from early 2016, providing 1Gb/s services; continuing growth in fibre network roll-outs; TDC switches to marketing guaranteed broadband speeds; 83% of the premises could access 100Mb/s broadband by early 2015; TDC advances with vectoring VDSL trials; shift in broadband subscriptions from fixed-line to mobile networks; government increases national upload speed to 30Mb/s by 2020; report update includes the regulator's market data update for 2014, telcos' operating and financial data to Q3 2015, recent market developments.
