Finland retains one of most advanced mobile markets in Europe. The country was the first to deploy 3G over 900MHz spectrum, and more recently it has auctioned spectrum in the 800MHz to extend the availability of LTE services nationally. The Finnish vendor Nokia Networks is also involved in developing 5G technologies. Growth in the number of mobile subscribers has stalled, in line with the high penetration, while the market has shifted to mobile data and mobile broadband. Market competition has helped keep mobile call charges among the lowest among EU member states. Regulated tariffs and termination rates have also put revenue pressure on MNOs. This report provides statistics and research on the Finnish mobile market, including key regulatory issues, a snapshot of the consumer market, the growth of mobile data services and the development of emerging technologies and networks such as HSPA and LTE.

Key developments:
TeliaSonera launched commercial LTE-A in Helsinki; DNA trials LTE-A, providing peak data of 270Mb/s; Ukko Mobile contracts Huawei to develop an LTE450 network; Sonera and DNA signed a mobile network sharing deal affecting sparsely populated Northern and Eastern Finland; Nokia to develop a trial 5G data network; MTRs reduced again, effective to November 2015; MNP conditions revised; TeliaSonera's LTE network recording 48Mb/s, extended to 50 locations; Russia and Finland negotiate roaming agreements; government calls for legislative amendments to expedite 700MHz band for mobile broadband; Finland signs 800MHz spectrum agreement with Russia; regulator auctions 800MHz for LTE; MTR reduction agreed to late 2014; DNA expands HSPA+/LTE to 50% of the population; Anvia pilots LTE network using the 700MHz band; Elisa launches LTE in Espoo; mobile broadband accounts for over half of all broadband subscribers; regulator's H1 2014 market data report; telcos' financial and operating data to Q4 2014; recent market developments.

Companies covered in this report include:
TeliaSonera, DNA, Elisa and Digita.
