Finland - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

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. The incumbent, TeliaSonera, remains 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. This report profiles Finland's fixed and wireless broadband markets, together with developments in related technologies such as FttP, powerline broadband, wireless broadband, Wi-Fi and internet via satellite. It also provides broadband forecasts to 2020.

Key developments:

TeliaSonera trials G.fast technology in Helsinki with Huawei; DSL subscriber base shrinks as customers migrate to fibre infrastructure; mobile broadband accounting for over half of all broadband subscribers; regulator providing 7 million funding for rural broadband projects; DNA provides 200Mb/s broadband and tests 1.5Gb/s service; report update includes the regulator's market data update to June 2015; telcos' financial and operating data to Q2 2015; recent market developments.
