Finland Telecommunications Report Q2 2014BMI View: While many aspects of the Finnish telecoms market appear to have reached saturation, BMIstill identifies a number of opportunities for operators in the market. Wireline, in particular, has seengrowth slow right down, with 2013 growth of around 3% in broadband subscriptions. Fixed-line telephonescontinue to rapidly decline, with little hope for a rebound or even a slow down expected in the near term.

Growth in the mobile market dipped below 2% in 2013 compared to 2012, reaching penetration of 181.9%,one of the highest in the region. We therefore see content, data and the provision of these services throughnext-generation technologies as key to the market's development. Fibre optics in the wireline sector aregrowing slowly but steadily and can be used for the provision of IPTV and other over-the-top content,which we see becoming an important driver. For mobile operators, the auction of 800MHz spectrum willundoubtedly help in delivering 4G services across a wider coverage and continued generation of incomefrom mobile data. Backed by high spending ability of Finnish consumers, we continue to remain bullish onthese opportunities in the Finnish telecoms market.

Key Data

The launch of LTE services will help cater to the rising demand for 3G/4G services in Finland. BMIestimates that there were 6.62mn 3G/4G subscribers in 2013 and expects the total to rise 24.7% by2018 to 8.249mn. During this period the 3G/4G mobile penetration will rise from 67.7% to 82.4%.

Finland's mobile market continues to exhibit modest growth, adding 187,000 new subscribers in 2013.

Annual growth has fallen below 2% and BMI sees little prospect of this rising again. The most recentdata from regulator FICORA cover the end of 2013; it is preliminary in nature and may therefore berestated in the near future once the figures have been verified. FICORA suggests that there were 9.310mnmobile subscribers in Finland at the end of 2013, representing a slight decrease from 9.320mn at the endof 2012.
