In the open access network model, the roles of the service provider and the network owner are separated, and the service providers get access to network and the end customers on fair and non-discriminatory conditions. This should be compared to the traditional vertically integrated business model where the service provider and the network operator are the same. A large number of open access networks have been deployed in Sweden over the last 10 years. In this paper we give an overview of such networks, draw conclusions from the Swedish experiences with open access, and outline the perspectives for future deployments both within and outside of Sweden.
