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. 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 next?
You who will receive fiber in your apartment will receive a letter from us in which we go through what will happen and how we work in a safe way. You will then receive a notification in the mailbox with the exact date when an installer comes to you.
We do not have exact dates for when other areas will get fiber. We will inform you when it is time for your particular area to become fiber connected. On IP-Only's website, you can follow the work of connecting all our homes to fiber.
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
