The mobile network is nearly fully covered by the three largest operators.

Furthermore, Elisa is the market leader in fixed telephone subscriptions with a market share of 39 per cent. TeliaSonera holds 23 per cent and DNA 15 per cent of such subscriptions. Finnet Group accounts for 22 per cent. Compared with the end of 2014, DNA has increased its share of fixed telephone subscriptions by 1.5 percentage points. This is partly explained by the business transaction where DNA Oy acquired the Finnish operations of TDC. Even though the number of fixed telephone subscriptions has fallen by 10 per cent in six months, the decrease has been fairly even among all operators.
