The development within SMS on the Swedish and Norwegian market is much better at taking advantage of the commercial potential in SMS, than the Danish market. Compared to Denmark, the earnings on SMS are three times as high in Norway and twice as high in Sweden. In Denmark only 3-4 % of the mobile operators’ earnings come from SMS.
