It’s said that the biggest fear one has it that of public peaking. For me, my biggest fear is not having cellular service, and not being able to connect while on the go.

So, how does one connect while in Finland

Some quick tips to staying connected while on the go:
By phone Not many of these left As you’d expect from Nokia’s home country, mobile phones are ubiquitous in Finland. GSM, WCDMA(3G) and LTE (4G) networks blanket all of the country, although it’s still possible to find wilderness areas with poor signal, typically in Lapland and the outer archipelago.

The largest operators are Sonera and Elisa , a Vodafone partner, but travellers who want a local number may wish to opt for DNA’s Prepaid package, which can cost as little as €6. Vectone Mobile offers prepaid sim-cards for €10 which include €10 cr. Unlike other operators, Vectone Mobile also offers low international call rates. Ask at any convenience store/R-Kioski for a list of prices and special offers. Public telephones are close to extinction in Finland, although a few can still be found at airports, major train/bus stations and the like. It’s best to bring along a phone or buy one – a simple GSM model can cost less than €40.
