The number of fixed-line broadband subscriptions contains all the subscriptions acquired by households and companies. In the statistics, fixed-line broadband subscriptions cover all the broadband subscriptions that have been implemented otherwise than through a mobile network, i.e. also subscriptions using radio technology.

All fixed-line subscriptions have been classified according to their nominal data transfer speed. Data transfer speed means here the maximum data transfer speed (the upper limit of the speed category) referred to in the subscriber connection agreement from the network to the user.


At the end of December 2020, there were 1.85 million fixed broadband subscriptions in Finland, of which 1.65 million were household subscriptions. The total number has been growing steadily.

The download speeds of broadband subscriptions have also shown stabile growth. The share of subscriptions with at least 100 Mbps download speed was 46 per cent. Only 3 per cent of broadband subscriptions provided less than 10 Mbps download speed.
