Landline telephone ownership rate in households in Denmark 2008-2019
Fewer and fewer Danish households had landline telephones over the past decade, reaching only 18 percent as of 2019. This was a dramatic decrease compared to the start of the evaluated period – 2008, when as many as 76 percent of households in Denmark owned landline telephones. When observing the evolution of fixed telephone lines worldwide since 2000, it can be seen that the peak was reached in 2006. That year, there were nearly 1.3 billion fixed phones. After increasing steadily from 2000 to 2006, the number of owned fixed phones started decreasing gradually, reaching less than one billion in 2017. 942 fixed telephone lines were estimated to have been owned in 2018 worldwide.

All the other telecom providers in the country, including Tt-Netværket, Eltel, T-Systems Nordic, and others, had registered revenues of less than one billion Danish kroner.
