Finnish mobile calls tariffs unchanged in recent years

Friday 21 December 2012 | 14:02 CET | News

Finnish mobile telecom tariffs unchanged in recent yearsFinnish operators' prices of mobile phone calls and text messages remained the same in recent years, whereas the prices of data transfer services fell and those of fixed telephone call prices rose, according to a report by telecom regulator Ficora.

In the Greater Helsinki area, fixed broadband subscriptions are clearly less expensive than in other big cities, for example. However, the price differences between different areas have become smaller during the past twelve months. A comparison between Finnish operators' prices and those of Nordic operators shows that the prices of broadband subscriptions in Finland are close to the Nordic average.

In practice, the prices in telecoms operators' price lists are often higher than what consumers actually pay, because they do not include fixed term offers. Also, price lists are updated less frequently than consumer prices.

Telecoms operators' price lists are not a good source for the price comparison of mobile data transfer services, because competition in this product group is largely based on offers and package deals, Ficora said. However, telecoms operators' revenues show that consumers are making less expensive mobile broadband subscription deals, although no major changes have taken place in the price lists in the past couple of years.

The information is based on the recent Ficora Market Review, which delves into the retail prices of broadband subscriptions and telephone services provided to Finnish consumers.
