Finnish mobile phone call fees lowest in Europe
font size    

Mobile call charges in Finland continue to be the cheapest in Europe, according to a survey issued in Helsinki on Wednesday.

Call charges in Finland and 17 other European countries were compared in a survey in April that was commissioned by Finnish Transport and Communications Ministry.

The charges in almost every country surveyed had either dropped or were the same as a year ago.

The biggest decreases took place in Sweden, Switzerland and Finland, while charges in Greece and France clearly went up. The price difference between the least and the most expensive country has increased by almost a fifth during the past year.

The survey used a "price basket" consisting of 150 minutes of weekday, weeknight and weekend calls a month, 25 SMS text messages, a monthly subscription charge and value added tax. The basket of charges also included the call initiation fee.

In Finland the cost of the survey basket was 15.90 euros (20.4 US dollars). The most expensive price baskets were to be found in Germany with 46.80 euros (59.5 dollars).
