Swish is one of the best innovation regarding p2p (person 2 person) payments.
and now it's also available for companies.

My business mobile comes with 100GB mobile data at a speed of 60Mbit for aprox $100 :-)

I haven't open a computer for 2 years to pay my bills averything is done using my iphone and OCR scanning and e-invoices on the rest.

We have lots of great things in Sweden.

Så sant, Fredrik. :-)

Swish sounds like Pingit and Paym in the UK, sounds like Germany really has some catching up to do.

Some?

I just had fiber installed to my house last autumn. It cost me ca. 2.000 € for the installation - and I live in a 500 person village here in Sweden, so a lot of fiber needed to be laid to get around. Now I pay about 35€ per month for 100 MBit/s up/down. I could go up to 1 GBit/s down, 100 MBit/s up for around 95€.

I use a prepaid phone where 1 GB LTE traffic costs about 5€ and is valid for 31 days. Coverage is excellent, even on streets between smaller villages.

I really hate it when I'm back in Germany and pay 10€ for 250 MB prepaid traffic. I have to disable the usage of most of the apps on my phone to survive a month... And then, of course, it's an option you enable, so it will drain your pre paid account, if you forget to disable it in time.

Finland also has a reputation of making good licorice.

I also like the right of 4 weeks vacation. At a stretch!

That licorice is from my home town, happy that you enjoy it !

Thank goodness no one has come to the defense of Danish licorice. Yuck. Although, my reaction to it is source of much laughter from the Danes.

I'm pretty sure the cost advantage Swedes have in telecoms is more than offset by the alcohol prices.

In my apartment building here in Stockholm we had to choose between 100 or 1000 Mbit/s up/down for either 17 € or 29 € per months. Anything below that speed was not possible.

Just recently read in the newspaper, that the city will be the first with 5G.
