Internet Service Providers (ISP's) in Finland

Introduction
High-speed broadband Internet access is standard throughout Finland. Service is absolutely reliable, and ISP subscription rates are reasonable.

Unlike many countries Finnish ISP's don't impose data caps on network usage; on a fixed network you can download unlimited data with no 'excess' fees or reduction in connection speeds. In 2019 most mobile packages also include unlimited data transfer.

Data roaming charges within Europe may be higher than your standard rates, but not by much. EU 'fair use' data caps are in place for roaming, and should cover your needs. Rates for use of mobile broadband outside the EU may be significantly - significantly - higher.

There are twice as many mobile broadband subscriptions in Finland than there are people!

Internet Connection Prices - Rough Guide

Fixed Broadband - Kiinteät laajakaistat
In 2019 you could pay about €20 per month for a 20 Mb/s ADSL connection. A 50 Mb/s connection may be €25 per month, a 100 Mb/s connection may be €30 per month, and 1000 Mb/s may be €40 per month. Prices vary widely and can be half to double these rates!
Mobile Broadband - Mobiililaajakaistat
In 2019 you could pay about €13 per month for a basic 1 Mb/s 4G connection. A 100 Mb/s 4G connection may be about €25-30 per month, and a 300 Mb/s 4G connection may be about €35-50 per month.
Tips:
ISP's special offers can be excellent. For example, my current rate for a 100 Mb/s fixed broadband connection is €10 per month.
Check the details of offers; great prices usually mean commitment to a fixed-term contract, and sometimes include additional setup costs and/or equipment charges.

If you travel outside Finland, check data limits and prices. These differ for use within the EU, and outside the EU.
