The European Commission has ruled that the Finnish telecoms regulator (FICORA) must withdraw its plans to deregulate the wholesale markets for fixed voice call termination in Finland. Finland's currently regulated fixed termination rates (FTRs) are the highest in the EU at 2.42 €-cents/min, compared to an average of 0.11 €-cents/min in all other EU member states which follow the approach recommended by the European Commission.
