Com Hem Aktiebolag of Sweden supplies Triple Play services that include Cable Television, Broadband Internet, Telephone.

Founded in 1983 as Televerket Kabel-TV as part of the former state-owned Televerket, the company has been successively named Svenska Kabel-TV AB and Telia InfoMedia TeleVision AB, before becoming 'Com Hem' (a play on the Swedish phrase Kom hem, "come home").

Today the company has 135+ TV channels available to its TV customers. Digital TV was introduced in 1997. A broadband service that uses the company's proprietary Cable Network was launched in 1999. In 2004 VoIP Telephone was introduced and the company became Sweden's first nationwide Triple Play Service Provider.

All the households connected to the Com Hem Cable Network have access to Broadband Internet services, services, Fixedline Telephony and a wide range of TV Channels. Com Hem also provides interactive services that facilitate management, communication and maintenance for property owners.

The company has around 700 employees with offices in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö, Västerås, Härnösand and Örnsköldsvik. When Televerket was privatized, the company remained as part of Telia, before being bought by private equity firm EQT. In 2011 the company was acquired by private equity firm BC Partners.

Com Hem has been ranked as the TV brand with the least satisfied customers in Sweden 2007, 2008 and 2009 according to Svenskt Kvalitetsindex, an independent customer survey company.
