Bredband2 supplies broadband, IP Telephony, data storage and safety solutions through the fiber network. In addition, the company offers co-location for webservers, e-mail and other operation-critical systems with associated network services such as Internet and VPN. The customer base is mainly private clients, but Bredband2 also offers a variety of different products to companies. Today, Bredband2 is primarily operating in the open city networks, where there is free competition between different operators.
The digitalization trend favors Bredband2. There is an increasing demand on faster and more stable network connections. This is due to more and more connected devices, higher TV resolutions, video-on-demand and online games, to mention a few examples. Hence, there is a shift from older network connections to newer ones, like ADSL to fiber. Furthermore, the Swedish government has a set goal that 95% of the Swedish population should have access to broadband by 2020. If this market starts to saturate, there is an opportunity for Bredband2 to seize a better position in the B2B market.
The main risks for Bredband2 are 1) generic product, which makes price an important factor for customers. 2) Market maturity and increased competition, mainly from bigger players, could cause decline in growth without increased margins. 3) High dependence to the net owners, and their continued investments in market expansion.
