Iceland Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Market 2023

Scope of the Report:

Iceland – Telecoms

Iceland looking to build another submarine cable to Ireland and UK. Iceland has one of the smallest yet most progressive telecom markets in Europe. There is effective competition in the mobile and broadband markets, with a number of players having emerged to challenge the dominance of the two leading players the two main players Síminn and Sýn.

Which have interests in numerous sectors. Sýn was formerly Vodafone Iceland which was rebranded to reflect the company’s move into broadband and broadcasting following its December 2017 acquisition of most of the telecoms and media interests of 365 Media. The new entrant Nova has become the leading player in the mobile market and has quickly expanded its presence in the fixed-line segment.
