  14. 14. Case Finland
  15. 15. New direction in communications policy  Some reasons for the policy change:   Broadband connections are no longer luxury products but necessary tools in day-to-day life.   Without adequate communications connections citizens cannot access   information society services.   Some telecommunications operators are cutting back services in the fixed copper telecommunications network in rural areas
  16. 16. “Information society policy has reacheda point where broadband has become a basic service. That is why everyoneneeds to be guaranteed access to it - it has to become a universal service.” “In today’s information society top quality broadband connections are essential for people’s everyday life or business everywhere in the country.” Suvi Lindén
  17. 17. Broadband Deployment in Finland1 Mbit/s by 2010  By July 1st, 2010 every permanent residence must have a reasonably priced access to a fixed or wireless subscriber connection with an average downstream rate of at least 1 Mbit/s.  The rate of 1 Mbit/s has been defined as a universal service but no public funding will be used.
  18. 18. 100 Mbit/s by 2015  By the end of 2015 all permanent residences shall be within two kilometres reach of high-speed connection permitting at least 100 Mbit/s connections.  Consumers will acquire their subscriber connection at their own expense.  In built-up areas telecom operators will build high- speed connections on market terms. This will achieve a population coverage of around 95%.
  19. 19. 100 Mbit/s by 2015  Extending the coverage to 100% will require that partly subsidised high-speed connections will be built to around 130,000 households in rural areas.  Public aid – two thirds – will be provided by the state, municipalities and the EU  The costs of the project will amount to about 200 million euros, of which telecom operators will pay at least one third.  Implementation in 2009−2015
