Before applying for a radio licence for the radio frequencies required for the use of a radio system, it is recommended that an application be submitted for a frequency reservation for designing a radio system or in situations where the procurement of a radio transmitter requires advance information on available radio frequencies.

As a result, the applicant can ensure at an early stage that appropriate frequencies are available for the use of the planned radio network. A frequency reservation will only be granted if the preconditions set for granting it are fulfilled. To reserve technically purposeful frequencies for applicants, the radio network plan to be attached with the application must be based on a real and feasible radio system project.

A radio licence can be applied for directly for a radio network in place of a frequency reservation. A radio licence can be granted without a frequency reservation if the licence application, including the attached radio network plan, is sufficiently detailed and feasible for granting a radio licence, and other preconditions set for granting a radio licence are fulfilled.

Please send a freely formulated application for a radio license via the contact form  or by sending an email to

Other use of frequency bands 2300–2320 MHz and 24.25–25.1 GHz

Frequency band 2300–2320 MHz is intended for use by wireless cameras. To protect this use, local networks may not be deployed in certain geographic areas or, for example, power restrictions may need to be imposed on local networks. These include areas in which several wireless cameras are used simultaneously and regularly. However, the use of wireless cameras in the 2300–2320 MHz frequency band is being discontinued.

The 24.3–25.1 GHz frequency band is reserved, in a Government decree, for research and development (in Finnish) (External link), testing and teaching in certain geographic areas in Espoo, Tampere, and Oulu.

Definitions related to local networks

  • “Mobile network” means a network which is based on 3GPP technology and uses mobile terminal equipment.
  • “Local operations” means operations that are local, based on the number of customers/subscriptions, the geographic area of use or other purpose of use (e.g., factory, port, shopping centre, airport, sports facility, district, village or campus).
  • “Minor network service” means operations that are minor in terms of the number of users, financial impact or significance in communications markets. Minor operations also cover operations that are minor based on the number of frequencies, other technical implementation or the service provided.

“Public mobile network” means a communications network which is used to provide communications services for an unlimited group of users.

“Private mobile network” means a communications network which is used to provide communications services for a limited group of users.
