Neutral fibre and the European Green Deal WIK-Consult

WIK-Consult, 2021

In this study, with the aid of interviews and case studies, we explore how Stockholm City’s fibre network, AB Stokab has helped Stockholm to become amongst the world’s greenest cities, and evaluate the environmental benefits that could be achieved across Europe if other communities follow Stockholm’s example.”

The role of wholesale only

WIK-Consult, 2018

In this report for Stokab we examine the role that wholesale only networks have played and are playing in boosting fibre deployment for public institutions, citizens and businesses across Europe; the views of infrastructure investors about the wholesale only business model; and the role wholesale only networks could play in the transition towards 5G, and its implications for future applications and services.

Development of High-speed Networks and the Role of Municipal Networks

OECD Science,Technology and Industry Policy Papers, Mölleryd B, 2015

This report gives further support for the notion that broadband speed matters and that high speed broadband networks generate positive benefits, contribute to economic growth, as well as to making firms more productive, based on an analysis of broadband, ICT and firm productivity in the United Kingdom and an econometric analysis of high speed broadband networks in Sweden.

Stokab Helps Build a Smarter Stockholm

Diffraction Analysis, Benoit Feldten, 2015

Stokab has been an example for many municipalities around the world and yet for most of the political decision makers, the story is still about delivering better broadband to citizens and businesses. This much revised version of the earlier analysis is about examining how Stokab is benefiting Stockholm itself, opening up opportunities for the city to tackle its future with foresight and intelligence.
