Abstract: 

We estimate, by means of multivariate regression analysis, the effect of fibre access networks (FTTH/FTTx) in
Sweden on employment and population evolution. The study builds on data from 290 municipalities between 2007 and 2010. We find a weak but statistically significant correlation, and we are able to exclude backward causality.
