A potential collaboration between Telenor and Telia could result in extremely high speed broadband for 1.8 million Swedish households. Computer Sweden magazine reports that Telenor has invited Telia for talks about the new vdsl2 technology.

The cost of developing a vdsl2 network in Sweden is estimated at 10 billion kronor ($1.5 billion).

"The best thing would be for Telia, Telenor and Tele 2 to reach an agreement on how best to finance the investment," Telenor's Swedish CEO Johan Lindgren told Computer Sweden.

If implemented, the system is expected to grant almost two million Swedish households access to a broadband capacity of 100 megabits per second.
