Com Hem Revs Up 500-Meg Broadband Tier


“Com Hem, Sweden’s largest cable operator, is stretching the legs of its broadband network with the rollout of a broadband tier that maxes out at 500 Mbps downstream and 50 Mbps in the upstream.

Available to “over 1 million households,” the new tier will set customers back SEK 899 (US$138.03) per month and give the MSO another high-end weapon to wield against competing telcos such as Telenor ASA and TeliaSonera AB.”
