Mobile broadband subscriptions exceeded all other broadband subscriptions
Data transmission in mobile networks continued to grow significantly in 2010. This shows both in the number of subscriptions and in the volume of data transferred. Especially the number of mobile broadband subscriptions increased significantly: at the end of the year, there were over 1.6 million mobile broadband subscriptions in Finland, which is 720,000 more than the year before. On the other hand, the number of fixed broadband connections also started to increase during the second half of the year, even though the curve had earlier showed a decreasing trend. In all, the number of broadband subscriptions was nearly 3.2 million. The number of subscriptions grew from the previous year by 29 per cent to nearly 3.2 million.
