Finland's Broadband 2015 program on track to ensure comprehensive 100Mb/s services

Finland's telecom market is among the more progressive in Europe, with considerable emphasis by both the regulator and operators to test-bed technologies, particularly in the mobile sector. As a result the country enjoys one of the highest broadband and mobile penetration rates in the region. New developments in G.fast and 5G technologies suggest that consumers will remain at the forefront of emerging technologies in coming years.

The country's high broadband penetration has resulted from astute regulatory measures which have encouraged market competition. The government has set in train an ambitious target to deliver 100Mb/s to all premises, principally through fibre networks supported by subsidies through its Broadband 2015 program, but also with LTE in certain remoter areas. Recent spectrum auctions ensure that most of the population can now benefit from commercial LTE services.

Although growth in the number of mobile subscribers has stalled, in line with high mobile penetration, the market has shifted to mobile data and mobile broadband. Market competition has helped keep mobile call charges among the lowest within the European Union, while regulated tariffs and termination rates have also put revenue pressure on MNOs.

This report introduces the key aspects of the Finnish telecom market, providing data on the fixed network services sector together with an overview of key regulatory issues including interconnection, local loop unbundling, number portability and carrier preselection. The major operators are profiled, while the telecoms infrastructure and fixed telephony services are also reviewed. The report also profiles Finland's fixed and wireless broadband markets, and assesses developments in technologies such as FttP, powerline broadband, wireless broadband, Wi-Fi and internet via satellite. It also provides statistics and research on the mobile market, including key regulatory issues, a snapshot of the consumer market, the growth of mobile data services and the development of emerging technologies and networks such as HSPA, LTE and 5G.
