Finnish TV network to launch Internet service

Published on .

HELSINKI--MTV3, Finland's leading commercial TV network, is to expand its Internet operations by offering Internet connections to the general public.

Initially the connections will be distributed in partnership with Fujitsu, to work on Fujitsu PCs, which are sold through the Finnish nationwide supermarket chain K-City.

The MTV3 Internet connection will provide an easy-to-use link to the Internet. According to MTV3, the new product is intended "for people who are daunted by information technology or find it difficult to use".

Users will connect directly into the MTV3's home page and the company gateway to the Internet, The People's Internet.

"Through the MTV3 Internet connection we wish to promote equality in information technology. Every person in Finland will now have affordable and effortless access to the Internet", says Jukka Mauno, president of MTV3 Internet.
