Swedes continue to connect their homes and now have 16.9 connected devices per household which is a growth of 33 percent compared to 2017.

Smartphones and tablets are at the top of the list, but the number of connected speakers and security solutions exploded in 2018.

Swedes like connected devices. Almost every tenth Swedish home now has a connected speaker in addition to smartphones and tablets according to data from Telia Sweden’s broadband customers and the service platform Telia Zone. The number of households with connected security solutions are also increasing dramatically. Connected weather stations are on the rise as well. 

During 2018 Telia Sweden upgraded 1.1 million households to Telia Zone, which turned the broadband routers into a service platform. All the data used in the survey is completely anonymized and cannot be derived from any individual or household.

Rickard Damm, Head of Telia Zone
We believe that we will see a substantial increase in the number of smart speakers across Sweden.
