Frequently asked question

 

How much is the connection fee of DigiMaa broadband network?

The amount of connection fee is decided on the basis of questionnaire results on the applications page. The connection fee is undoubtedly affordable for those who join the network in the building phase since it is supported by the state.  The connection fee in the beginning of building of the network does not exceed 300 euros. Those who join the network later, pay the actual cost of connecting their house into the network.

 

How much is the monthly fee?

All households joined with DigiMaa can choose the service provider on their own. Monthly fee depends on the service provider and services. All service providers’ price lists are available on their webpages and the same prices apply to everyone, regardless of the client’s location.

 

Who will provide services via broadband connection?

Consumers can use services of all operators via DigiMaa fiber optic cable network. DigiMaa broadband network will be built in a way that all service providers can provide their services. Estonian largest operators via broadband connection are Telia, Starman, STV, and Telset, but also all smaller service providers can provide their services.

 

When will the broadband connection be built?

At the moment, DigiMaa project is in the preparation stage where we want to find out where and how much network needs to be built and how much it will cost. In addition, financing must be organized, organization must be created, etc. Building of the broadband network in Harju County will start in 2018.

 

How do you know which houses should be connected to the network?

DigiMaa fiber optical cable network will not be built to all houses but only to those who wish. All residents of municipalities participating in DigiMaa project can mark on the applications page where they want the broadband connection.

 

If I don’t want the broadband connection now, can I join the network later?

We assume that all those who wish, join the network now. Only this way it is possible to significantly reduce the building costs.

 

Why should I connect the house to a fiber optic cable if today it is possible to connect to the Internet via mobile connection?

Mobile Internet over the air doesn’t have high enough capacity and quality to connect houses to the network. The mobile internet doesn’t allow the use of many services, it has capacity limitations and it’s more expensive. The capacity of broadband fiber optic cable is basically unlimited. Broadband network has no capacity limitations and thus, all services can be used today and in the future. Since fiber optic cable connection is becoming just as important as having electricity or water, then having broadband connection will also raise the property’s value. There is more on different technologies on the Broadband page.

 

Do I need a new broadband connection if I currently receive the Internet via copper-based telephone line?

Though it may seem today as if copper cable connection is sufficient, then in a couple of years it may change. New services and changes in people’s habits bring about higher demands on Internet connections. However, laws of physics do not enable to increase copper cable capacity and after a while, copper cable doesn’t meet the needs anymore. Since the fiber optic cable capacity is basically unlimited, it enables to use all services in tens of years.

 

Who owns DigiMaa?

DigiMaa project was initiated by the Union of Harju County Municipalities. DigiMaa fiber optic cable network will belong to a network enterprise specially created for that purpose.

 

How much will the building of DigiTee network cost and where does the money come from?

Initial cost will be calculated when we know where and how much network needs to be built, and which current infrastructure can be used in building the network. We plan to finance it via state support, connection fees and a long-term loan.
