Estonia - Key Statistics, Telecom Market and Regulatory Overviews

Estonia's telecom market continues to benefit from a range of regulatory measures which encourage competition, enabling alternative operators to chip away at the fixed-line market share of the incumbent Eesti Telekom. Fixed-line infrastructure has been upgraded and is geared towards offering broadband services and bundled offerings, with ADSL2+ and FttP networks deployed in urban areas and wireless technologies such as WiMAX used to deploy either competing infrastructure or access into rural areas. The government has also promoted a public-private partnership to build a national fibre-based next-generation network providing 100Mb/s to all premises. The first counties have been connected to the network. This report provides an overview of Estonia's fixed-line and IT markets, assessing the economic condition of the country in recent years and its influence on the performance of the largely international players in the market, recent regulatory developments, and the status of fixed-line networks and the NGN. It also includes a range of performance and financial data and estimates.
