Abstract: 

We analyse the extent of the annual net cost reductions stemming from the introduction of four FTTH- enabled digital services for home care, as recently introduced in the Swedish city of Västerås. In total, between 2014 and 2020, it is projected that Sweden could save up to between €3 and €6 billion if such services were massively deployed today. The cost reductions are analysed for three different types of municipality. The article also shows that there is a significant cost reductions potential for a less extensive (and more realistic) deployment scenario with only 10% of users using digital services.
