The service will initially be rolled out to 600,000 households in Stockholm, Borås, Falun, Gothenburg, Gävle, Jönköping, Linköping, Malmö and Uppsala.
Com Hem is currently upgrading its FiberKoax network to the next generation standard, DOCSIS 3.1. It’s planned to use the technology to further heighten speeds at a later date.
“In recent years, we have upgraded our network, and this means we can now offer download speeds of up to 1,200 Mbit/s to a large number of Swedish households. When we have completed the roll-out, we will be able to offer these speeds to most of our network. The upgrade will also enable even faster speeds moving forward. This places us at the heart of digitalisation in Sweden,” says James Lowther, Broadband Director, Com Hem.
Broadband 1,200 Mbit/s is provided together with the new test-winning router WiFi Hub C2.
“Most of our customers use wireless internet, and we are concentrating on providing the best possible WiFi experience combined with the fastest broadband speeds. This is why we are including our new test-winning router to help our customers get the most from their broadband,” says Lowther.
The new service costs SEK 899 per month.
