Finland - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Finland's high broadband penetration has been the result of astute regulatory measures which have encouraged market competition. Companies have also been keen to invest in new technologies in a bid to address demand for improved services among customers. The government has set demanding broadband delivery targets and is working towards targets to be achieved by 2025 and 2030 which incorporate a mix of fixed-line and mobile technologies, with the former focussed on FttP and DOCSIS3.1 technologies and the latter on gigabit LTE and 5G.

The incumbent telco Telia remains the dominant player in the DSL sector, but there is an ongoing shift away from DSL to fibre networks.
