Welcome to the Netnod Q1 newsletter


In these challenging times, we are seeing how important it is that people can access information reliably and that Internet services continue to run smoothly. At Netnod, we have been monitoring the situation closely and providing daily reports on the state of the Internet in Sweden. We currently see no indications of any issues with the core of the Internet in Sweden. We will continue to share what we know as the situation develops.

All Netnod’s services are functioning well. We are also ready to upgrade any IX customers that need more capacity at no additional cost. Please see below for more details. Following Swedish government guidelines, our staff are working remotely wherever possible. We continue to work effectively and are available for any meetings via remote channels. Just get in touch, and we will be happy to see you online. 

I hope you enjoy reading the newsletter, and I wish you and your families all the best of health.

Netnod CEO
