Karis Telefon Ab was founded back in 1920 and is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2020! The company operates in the southwest of Finland and is a member of the Finnet Association.

The company focuses on building fiber optic infrastructure as well as offering B2C and B2B fiber optic solutions for consumers, companies, communities and operators.

The original purpose was to provide landline phone services, but during the years the company has grown into a modern telecommunications company. Today the main services are high speed internet and cable tv through fibre optics. The aging telephone lines have been replaced with a modern fiber optic network since 2008, and this mission is estimated to be completed by the end of 2020.

The vision is to create a modern fiber optic network reaching all homes in Raasepori, Hanko, Inkoo and Siuntio. The customer support and services are locally produced. Karis Telefon is largely owned by its customers, each new FTTH subscriber becoming a shareholder. Local ownership is important to us, and something we’ve endeavoured towards in order to continue contributing to the wellbeing of the region, our home.
