Mobile phone usage in Sweden increased sharply last year, as mobile voice and
data revenue exceeded landline telephone revenue for the first time, according
to the National Post and Telecom Agency (PTS).
In December 2007 alone, almost 500,000 customers made use of mobile internet
services, up from just 90,000 wireless web subscriptions in the final month of
2006. Overall wireless data traffic increased ten-fold last year, while users
placed more and longer cell phone calls, and sent an average of 40 SMS messages
Total revenue from all mobile services came in at 19.7 billion SEK for the year,
up 12% from 2006.
“We take mobile telephony for granted. We are used to placing calls whenever and
almost wherever we want,” 2007 was the year when even broadband users could
seriously consider mobile Internet services when choosing a provider,” commented
Marianne Treschow, Director-General of the PTS.
