Com Hem boosts basic broadband to 5Mbps

Swedish cable operator Com Hem has increased its minimum broadband speed to 5Mbps from 0.5Mbps following upgrades to its network.

The operator said 16,000 customers had already subscribed to its 100Mbps service, which launched last November. At the end of the year, half of Com Hem’s subs took services with speeds of at least 10Mbps, a 70% increase on the previous year.

Com Hem’s up to 5Mbps service costs SEK199 (€19.50) per month. Up to 10Mbps is available for SEK279, up to 25Mbps costs SEK299 and 100Mbps costs SEK399.
