Post and newspapers

Finnish postal services are the responsibility of the state-owned enterprise Itella (formerly Suomen Posti), and are regulated under the Postal Services Act. This states that mail must be able to be sent and received on equal terms and conditions and at reasonable cost throughout the country. There are special arrangements in place for delivering mail in sparsely-populated areas and regarding people with disabilities.

A large number of newspapers are delivered to people’s homes at night or in the early morning in conjunction with the postal service’s early morning delivery service. Private companies also deliver newspapers.

The Ministry of Transport and Communications and the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority (FICORA) provide advice and information on what to do in cases of conflict related to postal services.
