Getting connected in Finland


Finland's rate of internet penetration is amongst the highest in the world. The internet is available via fast 4G/5G mobile network nationwide, as well as via an optic fibre/copper wire network. Competition amongst Internet Service Providers (ISPs) is quite high, so shop around for the best deals.

The greatest benefit of the modern and efficient internet infrastructure in Finland is its reliability. There is no limit on how much any individual can download and connection speeds do not suffer as network usage increases.

The three main internet providers are Telia , Elisa , and DNA , which all offer mobile and fibre options. 22 smaller companies  offer fibre and ASDL connections in regional areas and can be a good option if you are living outside the main cities.


When on the go, you can use your phone’s internet connection easily. Usually, mobile phone deals have unlimited data so you can create your own hotspot for friends or your pc to use.

Finland is also full of public wifi hotspots and many companies offer wifi to their customers. As networks are often not encrypted, anyone can have access to your traffic so it can be a good idea to use a good VPN to protect your privacy online.


IPTV (Internet Protocol television) is getting bigger and bigger in Finland so many internet providers now offer TV network services. This means that with an internet connection, network providers can also offer TV packages and streaming networks.

Watch out for lengthy contracts and surprisingly cheap offers as the small print can often include special conditions. Otherwise, if you enjoy watching loads of telly, this can be a good option.
