Denmark - Mobile Infrastructure, Broadband, Operators - Statistics and Analyses
Denmark's mobile market continues to show steady growth despite the country having one of the highest mobile penetration rates in Europe. Growth has been stimulated by consumer demand for data services, and this is set to continue strongly during the next few years as telcos are able to make use of additional spectrum in the 1800MHz band auctioned in mid-2016. In addition, the ITU's November 2015 decision to set aside 700MHz digital dividend spectrum for mobile broadband will enable the regulator to auction these assets as well, so improving access to broadband in rural areas. All four main operators TDC Mobile, Telenor Denmark, Telia and Hi3G have launched LTE services, supplementing their existing HSPA networks.
This report provides a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in the Danish mobile market, including an analysis of the key regulatory issues and the growth of mobile data services such as mobile TV.
