2019 will be a year with significant uncertainty for many operators. Will we get that frequency license? Will the merger in our market be approved? Will we be able to launch 5G?

Good then that there are questions that can be answered here and now. These are the ones we know many of you are busy with:

The Finnish-Estonian operator Elisa just published its 4Q 2017 results. And it was a new record in revenue and profitability.
How is that even possible? Readers of our public analysis of mobile data usage know that Finland is the mobile data usage powerhouse of the world – and that Elisa is no exception.

There has been a lot of talk – and increasing irritation – about pigeonholing, especially the younger (18 to 24 year olds), consumers to a tightly defined segment. Generalisations can be dangerous, especially for those companies that still primarily make the effort of engaging with their customers when they are buying something and spend most of their marketing dollars in digital and other forms of advertising.
