ComHem strikes local network deal for 8,000 homes

Swedish cable operator ComHem has signed a deal that will see its services offered by local network operator ServaNet in Sundsvall, Härnösand, Timrå and Ånge.

The deal means ServaNet’s 8,000 customers will have access to ComHem’s 140 TV channels, HD services and high speed broadband. Customers do not need a separate set-top to receive ComHem’s services.

ComHem’s business manager for residential investment, Mats Stock, said the deal was part of a wider strategy to target local service providers: “ComHem sees great potential in the residential market and [is having] discussions with a number of city network providers throughout the country. City networks are natural partners for us; they often have an extensive fibre infrastructure to the residential segment, ambitious expansion plans and important knowledge of local conditions.”
