Broadband costs 24x more in Denmark than in Sweden

Comparing this to this. In Sweden, SEK 449/month buys you 24 Mbit/s. In Denmark, the same amount (DKK 358) buys you only 1 Mbit/s. That’s 24 times more expensive here than in Sweden.



Did anybody say monopoly? Where are the regulators? How do law makers not see something like this happening and do something to create real competiton when they privatize? We’re getting ripped off. I’m outraged! (via Michael)

I'd also assume that Denmark would be the easiest and most profitable broadband market in Nordic anyway, considering the dense population.

There is a major investigation going on right now for alleged fraud in the plumbing business, so hopefully things are being shaken up. But the way this and other privatizaions have happened, privatizing a monopoly without taking steps to ensure that the monopoly is eliminated, is just madness.

That is apples and oranges. To be accurate, the cost is the same, but the bandwidth is larger. The title could have been: "Broadband 24x faster in Sweden than in Denmark at certain price point".
