Swedish multi-play operator Com Hem is launching a new maximum broadband speed of 1,200 Mbit/s. 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. This will offer greater capacity and higher speeds for all customers on the network and will enable Com Hem to deliver even faster speeds than 1,200 Mbit/s in the future.
“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,” said James Lowther, Broadband Director of 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,” added Lowther.
