Sweden being geographically large with a small population has been a driving force in its development of infrastructure and communication, including mobile connectivity. Sweden has always had demand for solid transportation and communications networks. Early action to promote digitalisation has meant that Sweden is now one of the most connected countries in the world with one of the highest rates of computer, internet and mobile penetration. As a result, the country is frequently used as a test market for new services and technology.
