VWhy is the monthly fee increasing on a yearly basis?

The monthly fee is increased every year in January. This is because we have inflation (increase in the general price level) in society, and we need to follow this in order to continue to deliver the same level of service to our colivers as before. The annual increase is therefore about adapting the monthly fee to the change in cost that occur in society.

It is the Swedish central bank (Riksbanken) that is responsible for controlling inflation in Sweden. Prices usually rise a little each year, and the goal is to have a 2% increase. If you find this interesting and want to read more about inflation, we refer you to the Riksbanken’s website
