An open network leads to more service providers competing through their services on the same market. The urban network therefore creates a local marketplace comprising a number of service providers with many services to choose between. Even public utilities that public bodies offer – applications and administration of matters with for example the social insurance agency, the employment agency, authorities, municipalities etc. – can be provided by several players.

Our network links all the urban networks in Norrbotten, which means that all transmissions and all distribution to the urban network go through our network. We work to ensure that all urban networks in Norrbotten meet high specifications on capacity and quality. Every broadband connection must have the capacity to provide Internet, TV and telephony via a single outlet.

IT Norrbotten certifies the county’s urban networks in accordance with the SKA (“safe client connection”) standard, in collaboration with netrounds.com.
