Estonia - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Progressive government policies on broadband infrastructure and an active regulatory regime have also contributed to Estonia having one of the highest broadband penetration rates in Europe. Broadband is available via a range of fixed-line and wireless technologies, with ADSL2+, FttP, cable, Wi-Fi, WiMAX and HSPA/LTE platforms widely available. The incumbent telco Telia Estonia is the dominant provider of DSL-based services, while cable broadband is the main competing platform. Telia is planning to end DSL-based services by the end of 2020, migrating customers to its G.fast and fibre networks. Elisa’s consolidation with the principal cableco Starman in April 2017 has enabled the operator to offer a more comprehensive suite of bundled services, and so compete more effectively with Telia.

High broadband penetration has underpinned Estonia’s emerging internet economy, with various e-commerce, e-government, e-education and e-health services available and widely used.
