Finland Telecommunications Report Q4 2014 - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Oct 31 2014

Finland is a very mature market with penetration rate around 180%, therefore BMI believes that there is limited scope for growth. Intense competition has seen operator's ARPU's decline, a trend which BMI believes will continue until the end of the forecast period. To keep a competitive edge, operators will have to focus on investing into high-bandwidth infrastructure such as fibre and LTE , but thi s is a capital-intensive undertaking despite the improved margins LTE at 800MHz would provide. Newcomer Ukko Mobile sees an opportunity in the LTE 450MHz market, but it will need to rely on innovative service bouquets if it is to stand out from the crowd. Content, data and provisioning models will therefore be central to developments over the next five years. Acquisitions and targeted strategy have improved broadband uptake for DNA and TeliaSoner a, as a result BMI believes that fixed-broadband subscriptions will decline at a lower rate than estimated in the previous forecast.

Key Data

* TeliaSonera's Finnish fixed-line subscriptions increased 6.4% year-on-year (y-o-y) from 1.055mn to 1.123mn in Q214. Data from DNA shows that the company's fixed-line subscriber base increased by 3.1% y-o-y to 1.043mn in June 2014 from 1.011mn in Q213.
* The mobile market is forecast to see subscriptions grow from 9.759mn in 2013 to 9.987mn in 2018, with numbers of 3G/4G subscriptions rising from 6.622mn to 8.249mn. This takes into account the phased rollout of 800MHz LTE services over this time.
* The wireline voice telephony market will continue to shrink, from 750,000 subscriptions to 510,000 by 2018. However, the fragmented nature of the market and a continued reliance on cable and xDSL in more isolated areas means that the rate of decline will slow over time. The number of broadband connections - including mobile - will reach 5.457mn by 2018.
