Utfors' Annual Report & Accounts 2000: Utfors opens debate on broadband services of the future Utfors is publishing today its annual report & accounts for the year 2000 - a year that was characterized by the completion of the fibre network and the sales start of Utfors' services, primarily the IP port. "The strong development of direct services that we have observed during 2000 is forecasted to continue during 2001. After the expected calm beginning of the year, I have noted with satisfaction strong sales growth during March, enabling me to be very optimistic for continued growth in sales", comments Jan Werne, President & CEO of Utfors AB. Utfors leads the broadband debate There has been a lot of debate about broadband during recent years, leading to Utfors' annual report & accounts containing a new approach, whereby a number of players have been given space to debate the most important questions on the subject, like for example Mikael Ek from our competitor, Telia.
