Update: 16 March 2018 | 13:34 CET
Finnish telecoms regulator Ficora said it is imposing price ceilings on the fibre local loops belonging to DNA, Elisa and Telia Finland, because excessive wholesale prices impede competition on the broadband market. The operators are to cut their wholesale prices by 28 percent to 80 percent, it said. Regulation of copper local loops will be scaled down, too.
