EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Estonia's MNOs prep for delayed 3.5GHz 5G auction

Estonia's competitive telecom market continues to progress with a range of regulatory measures which have enabled alternative operators to chip away at the fixed-line market share of the incumbent telco Telia Estonia. Fixed-line infrastructure upgrades have been focussed on fibre, and the legacy DSL network has gradually been replaced.

The MNOs Telia, Elisa and Tele2 have comprehensive LTE infrastructure in place. Limited commercial 5G deployments have been made though an expansion of service availability awaits the delayed auction of spectrum in the 3.5GHz band, which is expected to be held later in 2021.

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, and WiMAX platforms widely available. 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.

This report provides an overview of Estonia's telecom market, the performance of the key operators, recent regulatory developments, and the status of fixed-line networks and the NGN. It also includes a range of operating and financial data. In addition, the report reviews developments in the fixed and fixed-wireless broadband sectors, as also the mobile voice and data sectors including regulatory measures and operator strategies relating to 5G.

Key developments:
  • Telia Estonia launches Smart Wi-Fi service;
  • Government amends Electronic Communications Act to make conditions on use of technologies and equipment for telecom networks;
  • Commercial 5G services launched in major cites
  • Government commits 20 million to rural broadband program;
  • Report update includes operator data to Q4 2020, Statistics Estonia data to December 2020, the regulator's market data updates and annual reports, recent market developments.
