They are not running any optical gear, they rent dark fiber to enterprise 
and ISPs.

Lately they have installed one strand of fiber per every apartment in 
apartment buildings in Stockholm, to enable the possibility of renting 
FTTH fiber to ISPs all the way up to apartments. The major problem with 
this is that their handoff is in the basement of the building, so the 
building owner needs to pay for the installation from basement up to the 
apartments which is a major cost, and also it's currently not known 
exactly how fault finding should be done. I would be more comfortable if 
STOKAB took responsibility all the way into the handoff in the apartment.
