Broadband Market Insights, Statistics and Forecasts - Finland
Finland's high broadband penetration has been the result of astute regulatory measures which have encouraged market competition, as well as a population keen to adopt internet services and their delivery through fixed-line and mobile technologies. The government has set an ambitious target to deliver 100Mb/s to all premises by 2015. The incumbent, TeliaSonera, is the dominant player in the DSL sector, while there is also a vibrant cable network presence in urban areas. The completed digital 450MHz network provided the country with the world's first national wireless broadband network, while recent spectrum auctions will ensure that most of the population will benefit from commercial LTE services.
