Swedish triple-play provider Com Hem is to offer a range of "digital" services to customers after signing a deal with TMPL.

TMPL provides what it describes as a social media platform to premises, typically multi-dwelling units, that offers various services to those who live there.

For example, the company said customers could book laundry services, order groceries, book or share vehicles and order food from their local restaurants.

Landlords can also use the platform to share information with tenants and manage rent payments.

Smart home services, such as connected doors and coffee machines, are in the pipeline, according to TMPL’s website.

The deal with Com Hem sees the operator become the exclusive distributor of the platform to landlords and housing associations in Sweden.

Landlords are a key target market for Com Hem, alongside consumers and enterprises.

The operator said it wanted to add value to its existing offering, which is focused on traditional broadband, fixed telephony and TV services.

It has 961,000 customers after adding 8,000 in the second quarter, when ARPU rose by SEK8 to SEK376.

Its network passes 2.6 million premises and it plans to connect three million by 2020.

TMPL Chief Executive Eric Anderbjörk said: “The property sector is facing a major adjustment, where the challenge is to use the potential of digitisation in the homes of the future.

“We are driven by the belief that the digital offering for residents will become equally as important as the physical offering.

“The cooperation with Com Hem will accelerate this process and means that more people will soon be offered better living standards.”
