Nearly all Finns under the age of 50 have access to the internet, and more than half of those aged 65 to 79 are also online.
      Meanwhile, only one in five households have a landline telephone subscription, according to a consumer survey conducted by the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority (FICORA).
      Of all internet users, less than 30 per cent own a fixed high-speed subscription. Men are more likely to have a high-speed connection, as are those who are under the age of 50, those with jobs, as well as students and residents of the Helsinki region.
     
Landline phones are more common among older Finns than among the young. However, there are considerable regional differences.
      Whereas landline phones have virtually disappeared in Finnish Lapland, about 40 per cent of households in Ostrobothnia still have them.
     
Regardless of age, only one per cent of Finns cannot be reached by mobile phone.
      FICORA commissioned the consumer survey on communications services.
      The survey was conducted by TNS Gallup, which interviewed 3,000 consumers in mainland Finland in November.
