Denmark to have 1Gb/s DOCSIS3.1 covering 65% of premises by end-2017
Denmark has benefited from a competitive telecom market which has led to the country having Europe’s highest broadband penetration rate, as well as one of the highest penetration rates in the mobile sector. The fixed-line sector continues to lose revenue and customers as more people forego fixed phones for VoIP and mobile-only solutions.

The country has an excellent cable and DSL infrastructure which is being upgraded with VDSL and DOCSIS3.1 technologies. The FttP footprint continues to expand, which is encouraging the migration from basic DSL services. The broadband sector has also been supported by a progressive regulatory regime which has encouraged operator access to both copper and fibre networks. These measures are supporting the government’s objective for all premises to have access to a 100Mb/s service by 2020.

The 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 which was 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 H3 – have launched LTE services, supplementing their existing HSPA networks.
