Finland retains one of most advanced mobile markets in Europe. The country was the first to deploy 3G using 900MHz spectrum. More recently it has auctioned spectrum in the 800MHz to extend the availability of LTE services nationally, while it also planned to auction 700MHz spectrum by the end of 2016. The Finnish vendor Nokia Networks is involved in developing 5G technologies, which are expected to be trialled in 2017. 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:

Regulator preps for 700MHz auction by end-2016; MTRs reduced to 0.0125 per minute; Telia expands LTE-A footprint; DNA launches Finland's first 600Mb/s mobile broadband offer; Ukko Mobile contracts Huawei to develop an LTE450 network; Elisa claims 1.9Gb/s download on its LTE network; Sonera and DNA make progress with joint mobile network to deliver services in Northern and Eastern Finland; Nokia developing 5G data network; MTRs reduced; MNP conditions revised; Finland signs 800MHz spectrum agreement with Russia; regulator auctions 800MHz for LTE; mobile broadband accounting for over half of all broadband subscribers; report update includes the regulator's market data to June 2016, telcos' financial and operating data to Q3 2016, recent market developments.
