Broadband! Why on Holmön?

See the film clip! (in Swe)

Broadband is desired infrastructure and important for Holmöns development. Although 4G works somewhat it is not always stable and overloaded during summer.
  • Broadband raises the value of the property.

  • No requirements to connect to internet.

  • Facilitates private enterprise.

  • Will encourage more to take the step and move permanently to Holmön when more can work from home.
Contact or Umeå energi if you have questions.
