Communications in Sweden


In many areas of Sweden there are two daily postal deliveries on weekdays, but none at weekends.

Airmail within Europe takes two to three days.

Post office hours are Monday to Friday 0800-1900, and Sat 0800-1400. Some branches may be closed Saturday during July.


Country dialling code is 46. Coin-operated payphones no longer exist; they are all now card-operated.


The biggest mobile phone operators include TeliaSonera, Tele 2 and Vodafone. Mobile phone usage is widespread.


Voice over Internet Protocol

VoIP is a new technology which allows users to verbally communicate through their computer. Essentially a telephone call made using the internet, VoIP is becoming increasingly more common in the business world due to its low costs, and easy set-up and maintenance.

Forget installation engineers and phone number changes, as long as you have a broadband connection, you can use VoIP any time, any where.

For businesses, this software is sure to eventually phase out the traditional phonecall. For as low as 4p for local and national calls, the economical potential is vast. With international calls often even less than that, VoIP is perfect if you are prone to long-distance telecommunication, or have offices, clients, partners, etc, overseas. What's more, calls made between VoIP users are typically free all you pay for is the standard internet service.


It has been estimated that 80% of the Swedish population have internet access. There are around thirty internet service providers. The biggest broadband providers are Bahnhof Internet, Bredbandsbolaget, com hem, Glocalnet, Spray and TeliaSonera.

Internet use by businesses in Sweden is much more widespread than even the UK.
