History

In 1981, a mobile phone provider called Comvik started as an alternative mobile phone operator to Televerket . The cable television provider Kabelvision AB started in 1986. Comvik changed its name to become Comviq when the company got a GSM license in 1988 and started operating in 1992.

In 1991, Sweden's first commercial ISP was started with the Swedish IP Network , AS1257) by Investment AB Kinnevik, later renamed as Tele2, and in 1993 with telephone liberalisation in Sweden, Tele2 started to offer international calls.

The three companies of Comviq, Kabelvision, and Tele2 came together as the Tele2 brand on fixed-line services and Comviq on mobile services in Sweden in 1997. The Swipnet branding was phased out in 2014. International growth came in the form of acquisitions in Estonia,Lithuania, Latvia, Russia and France.

In November 2018, Tele2 was merged with telecom operator Com Hem, which delivers, among other things, TV, broadband and telephony. In March 2019, it was stated that millions of mobile answers could be intercepted by others. At the beginning of 2020, the streaming service Comhem Play+ was launched available to those who are not a customer at Com Hem. The same week, the new digital operator Penny was also launched.
