Denmark’s Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Market, 2019-2023: Competition Impacting on Revenue –

– Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband – Statistics and Analyses”

report has been added to’s

This report provides a comprehensive overview of trends and developments
in Denmark’s telecommunications market. The report analyses the
fixed-line, mobile and broadband sectors.

Denmark’s competitive telecom market continues to benefit from having
one of the highest broadband penetration rates globally, as well as
comprehensive LTE coverage. This has stimulated a range of IP-enabled
applications which has encouraged revenue growth in the mobile and
internet segments, though market competition has meant that overall
sector growth has fallen in recent years.

Excellent cable and DSL infrastructure have been supported by a
progressive regulatory regime which has encouraged operator access to
both copper and fibre networks. Fibre networks have a fast-growing
footprint, while a number of community and metropolitan schemes have
supplemented TDC’s own commitments to build out fibre nationally. The
development of VDSL and fibre, as well as LTE-A and 5G in the mobile
market, is crucial to meeting 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. Operators
have started trials of 5G services while commercial services will be
greatly supported from the beginning of 2020 when spectrum in a range of
bands which will become available.
