Telia’s statistics reveal: in the corona year, people escaped to Lapland and to the cottage

The use and movement of Finns’ data was exceptional during the Crown Year, they say Telian statistics. They tell us not only about the record-breaking cottage summer but also about the strong growth of tourism in Lapland.

The most active Finns moved in September last year, when an average of 9.2 million trips were made per day. The quietest month, on the other hand, was April, when there were a third fewer daily trips.

Although the number of trips started to fall sharply after September, Finns still moved more in December than, for example, in May.

Telecommunications volumes to the north clearly exceeded previous years. Telia’s Vice President, Networks Sami Siiki considers it probable that the ski holiday week will set an all-time record for Internet traffic in Northern Finland.

“When tourists are mainly Finns accustomed to unlimited data use instead of foreign tourists, it is not surprising that holidaymakers who are isolated due to the corona break old records,” he says in press releases.

The telework, which began in March, was also visible as a data spike. The use of video conferencing and entertainment services increased, especially during the day. In previous years, the busiest times had hit the evening’s lessons.

Last year, traffic grew by almost 30 percent on both mobile and fixed network subscriptions.
