Denmark - Key Statistics, Telecom Market and Regulatory Overviews

Denmark's competitive telecom market enjoys Europe's highest broadband penetration rate. Its mobile sector has progressed with all four operators encouraging consumer uptake of data services on upgraded HSPA networks, while recent auctions for 2.6GHz spectrum have paved the way for network operators to deploy mobile broadband services based on LTE.

This report introduces the key aspects of the Danish telecom market, presenting comprehensive data on the fixed network services sector and profiles of the major operators. It also analyses market statistics and assesses the key regulatory issues including interconnection, local loop unbundling, number portability and carrier preselection.
