Elisa raises broadband prices for first time

23 May 2006

Finland’s Elisa Corporation has said it will raise tariffs for its slowest broadband connections from 1 July, the first time the company has increased its internet access prices, according to Reuters. The company said it will increase monthly fees for its 256kbps and 512kbps services by between EUR3 and EUR5 (USD3.82-USD6.37) per month. ‘The demand for these connection speeds has dropped significantly during the last year,’ Elisa spokesperson Tiina Kovero explained.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, Elisa had 420,465 broadband subscribers at the end of 2005, compared with TeliaSonera’s 350,000, Finnet Group’s 287,700 and Helsink Television’s 67,000.
