Tele2 Wholesale manages an extensive dark fibre network in Sweden. Some parts of it are owned exclusively by the Tele2 group, while other are co-owned in partnership with high-voltage grid owners Svenska Kraftnät, Vattenfall, Fortum or various municipal and urban utilities. Tele2 Wholesale has organized its dark fibre networks in three categories:
- Perfect for core infrastructure.
- Able to build your own WDM solutions.
- Connecting your local points easily.
Urban dark fibre services: Swedish urban optical fibre networks have frequently been established by power utilities owned by the municipal councils with the intention to provide a commercially neutral infrastructure, in which all service providers may lease bandwidth. Having a single physical network in an urban area simplifies maintenance. The urban networks are essential components in the national telecom infrastructure and therefore they use state-of-the-art technology and are continuously upgraded. The Tele2 group is a co-owner of such networks in several Swedish cities and towns, where Tele2 Wholesale provides urban dark fibre services.
Transport dark fibre services: Tele2 collaborates with three major electricity distributors – Svenska Kraftnät, Vattenfall, and Fortum – in supplying transport dark fibre to the six most important Nordic cities: Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö, Copenhagen, Oslo and Helsinki. (Several nearby cities may also be connected to these services by special arrangement.) These services utilize fibre-optic cables installed in the national power grid.
Municipal dark fibre services: Tele2 manages an extensive municipal dark fibre network (BAS fibre) in the Scania Administrative Region (Region Skåne) through the SkåNet company, which serves as the overall representative of Tele2. This regional network is made of a high-capacity optic fibre with a combined length of 2,000 km. It reaches 253 geographic locations with a total of over one million inhabitants. BAS was established under special contractual stipulations and therefore it must be administered separately from all other Tele2 Wholesale operations, though it is of course seamlessly interconnected with them.
Thanks to a unique collaboration between the network owners SkåNet, Tele2 Wholesale, AC-Net, IT Norrbotten, Triangelbolaget and Global Connect, we can provide n entire north to south and east to west coverage city networks included therin.
