The Climate Service Centre continues to serve at 0600 10 601 (available from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, price €3.98/min + local network charge).

When calling the FMI’s 029 539 number from a landline phone, the caller pays the local network charge set by the telecommunications company. When calling the FMI’s 029 539 number from a mobile phone, the caller pays the mobile call charge set by the telecommunications company.

The price for calls made directly to the personnel’s mobile phone numbers is determined according to the rates charged by the caller’s operator.

The change in phone numbers at the Finnish Meteorological Institute is part of a wider telecommunications reform to harmonise the numbers used in State administration. At the same time, the personnel will start for the most part to use mobile phones in their work.
