Nordic countries: Report on mobile market October 3, 2006

Posted by Jasper in Mobile.

Last week a report on the Nordic mobile market was made available on the IT- og Telestyrelsen website. It is a collaboration between the Nordic telecom regulators: NPT (Norway), FICORA (Finland), PTS (Sweden), ITST (Denmark) and PTA (Iceland).

It provides a reasonable starting point for anyone wishing an overview of the Nordic mobile market. Some of the conclusions include:

  • The growth in the number of mobile subscriptions relative to the population (mobile penetration) has been similar in all Nordic countries. Today, mobile penetration is above 100 % in all five countries;
  • Demark has the lowest mobile prices in the Nordic countries;
  • Denmark has the highest number of text messages per customer per year;
  • Finland has witnessed a markedly higher number of portings than the other Nordic countries;
  • Finland has the highest number of traffic minutes per customer per year;
  • Sweden currently has the most operators (MNO, MVNO and SP);
  • Based on a concentration index at a wholesale level, Denmark has the most competitive market; and
  • Denmark currently has the highest mobile termination prices.

The report is availbale here.
