  1. Customer opinions 

Unless you have been living in Sweden for a long time to know which internet provider is the best, you first read reviews before making any decision.

You can find independent reviews from Swedish review websites such as Omdömesställe. They provide a platform where Swedish people who’ve used services from different companies can post their opinions and complaints on them.

To give you a head start on an internet service provider you may read some reviews about Telia to find out whether their services are worth the prices they go for.

  1. Geographical coverage 

It is expensive to set up internet service throughout the country and that is why some providers limit themselves to certain areas especially where there is a high population. 

ISP with greater geographical coverage is the better option, especially for a traveler. 

  1. Speed

If there is something we all share in common is that we all want extremely fast internet speed. Internet providers know this as much as we do and that is why they vary their pricing depending on the speed of the internet. 

Speed is how fast information can travel to and from the internet. Download speed is how fast you can retrieve information from the internet to your device and upload speed is how fast the Internet can process your keyed search.

  1. Bandwidth

There’s a slight difference between internet speed and bandwidth. Bandwidth is the capacity of an internet connection.

If your Internet service providers offer the bandwidth of 10 Mbps this means that that is the maximum you can get. If you have to divide 10 Mbps with the number of internet devices connected then it means the speed will be slower with some of the devices.

  • DSL (digital subscriber line)
  • cable broadband
  • dedicated leased line
  • satellite and mobile broadband
  • wireless or Wi-Fi broadband
  • fiber optic broadband

For instance, cable broadband is faster than DSL connections.

Internet cyber security is just as important as the type of connection or the speed of the internet. If you intend to use the internet for businesses then it might as well interest you to look at some ways to check your internet connection.

Two different internet providers may have the same internet speeds but their pricing is different. The price differences maybe because of other extended services which you have to factor in. 

Therefore to determine the more favorable internet price you have to compare with the sorts of services they come with. 

The average price of the internet (8 Mbps) in Sweden is SEK 219.
