14 Apr 2021

The Danish Energy Agency (DEA, or Energistyrelsen) has published a projection highlighting that 99% of all homes/business in Denmark will have access to high speed broadband services (down/uplink of 100Mbps/30Mbps) by 2025, up from 94% in 2020. The DEA disclosed that its projection ‘has been prepared on the basis of an extensive dialogue with twelve companies, which geographically cover virtually the entire country.’ The DEA said that around 22,000-26,000 homes/businesses will remain without high speed broadband coverage at that date, with around 7,500-10,000 of those located in the Hovedstaden region (comprising Copenhagen City, Copenhagen surroundings, North Zealand and Bornholm provinces, 36% of total), 5,500-5,800 (Sjaelland [East Zealand, West Zealand and South Zealand], 24%), 5,000-6,000, (Syddanmark [Fyn and South Jutland], 23%), 3,900-4,000 (Midtjylland [West and East Jutland], 16%) and 100-200 (Nordjylland [North Jutland], <1%).
