communication is developing at a rapid pace, and many of us use the Internet
daily for shopping, banking and watching TV from all corners of the globe. We
work from home, use social media, play computer games and have conversations
with family and doctors by video communication.
In order to
meet today’s increasing need, and not least that of the future, of a stable and
dependable solution for Internet, TV and telephone, fiber is the best option.
The old copper cabling is on the way out and that is why a viable alternative
is needed for the long-term. The fiber optic cabling is made to be upgraded and
is furthermore a reliable solution that can withstand both thunder and strong
At Förbo we
have decided to invest in fiber for all our buildings until 2020. In order to
proceed we need your approval since the installation involves a rent
increase.In cooperation with
Hyresgästföreningen / the Swedish Union of Tenants we have agreed upon a rent
increase of 55 SEK per month and apartment.
What will happen to my present choice of TV
programs included in the rent?
analogue TV channels included in the rent are not affected by the optic fiber
installation. You will keep all the analogue channels that you currently have.
What will be the charge for the broadband or TV
At this stage you
don’t have to choose what TV channels you would like or how fast your Internet
connection would be. What you will say yes or no to at this stage is the cost
of the optic fiber installation and thus have the opportunity later to get the
broadband connection and/or TV channels. We will then in good time inform you
of how to choose services and how much the charges will be.
You will be
able to order the services on a portal where you can choose your provider. As
soon as we know which providers will be in the network, we can give you
the exact charges. Below are examples of current priceranges for similar portals and
(N.B. These are example charges. Final
charges only after installation.)
Broadband 100/10 Mbit/s: 129 - 339 SEK/month
Broadband 250/100 Mbit/s: 99 - 405 SEK/month
Broadband 1000/1000 Mbit/s: 329 - 899 SEK/month
TV 15-20 channels:
200 - 300 SEK/month
TV 70-80 channels: 300 - 500 SEK/month
Additional wall outlets
If you would like
more than one wall outlet it will cost an additional 15 SEK a month per outlet.
This charge has been agreed upon with Hyresgästföreningen / the Swedish Union of
Tenants. You do not have to decide whether you would like to have additional
outlets right now.
What will happen next?
In order to carry
out the installation we need a positive answer from more than half of the tenants in each
building. So, it is very important that you say yes, if you would like us to
carry out the installation, or no, if you would not like us to.We will present the results as they come in
and if necessary send out reminders.
As soon as
we have a positive response we can set up a schedule for the installation. Then
we will also be able to tell you when the installation will start in you
building. The goal is that all Förbo tenants will have fiber before the end of
also email or call us if you have any questions about the installation:
