Fiber fever! Viasat heats up Swedish broadband market

February 6 2017

Over 1 million households in Sweden can now choose broadband from Viasat as part of a first-class triple-play offering.

Back in 2012, Viasat started offering broadband to customers in Sweden. Today, Viasat broadband is available to over 1 million Swedish households through 30 of the country’s open fibre networks, with almost 2 million households expected by 2020.
