In some towns, the coverage of the 5G network is already quite extensive in the central and urban areas, while in other towns, the network is still focused to smaller areas. You can check the situation in your area of residence easily from DNA’s 5G coverage map which is available at www.dna.fi/5G. There is a delay in updating the coverage map, so the newest base stations might not be visible yet.

In urban areas, DNA provides 5G services particularly for mobile phone users. In residential areas, the network aims to provide a fast, stable and affordable alternative to a 4G mokkula or fixed fibre-optic connection. DNA Koti 5G brings a fast and reliable internet to detached, semi-detached and terraced houses. The reliable network provides a high-quality connection for the entire family, as the home is provided with its own bandwidth, and the speed of the connection is guaranteed.

5G where the need is greatest – construction proceeds quickly 

In early 2021, the construction of the 5G network will focus particularly in the Helsinki city centre area, Espoo, Vantaa and Lahti. In addition, final touches have been made to the construction in Turku and Tampere.

As the year progresses, the expansion of the existing 5G network coverage will focus on Espoo, Helsinki, Hämeenlinna, Jyväskylä, Kauniainen, Lahti, Pori, Rauma, Seinäjoki, Sipoo, Vaasa and Vantaa. 5G base stations are also constantly being built in new towns, as DNA is continuously monitoring the capacity in its 4G network and building the 5G network based on the obtained data. This means that base stations are renewed so they have the capacity for 5G in the regions and towns where the need for additional capacity is the greatest.

“Customer experience is very important to us. When we identify that a specific base station is regularly congested due to the high amount of mobile data that is used, we aim to upgrade that base station to have the capacity for 5G as quickly as possible. At the same time, this will also significantly improve the performance of the region’s 4G network,” says Jarkko Laari, Director, Radio Networks, DNA.

Suomen Yhteisverkko Oy (Finnish Shared Network), a company jointly owned by DNA Plc and Telia Finland Oyj, will start building a 5G network in Northern and Eastern Finland. The three-year construction project will begin in early 2021. On Friday, 29 January 2021, it was announced that the owners have agreed to expand their existing cooperation in the construction of a mobile network. The geographical area is set to be expanded further southwest. You can read more about this from the DNA’s press release.

Vihdoin kotiverkkojen haasteet historiaan uudenlaisen älyteknologian avulla – DNA lanseeraa käänteentekevän palvelun16.2.2021 14:00:00 EETTiedote

DNA lanseeraa kiinteän verkon modeemeihin uuden älyteknologiaan perustuvan DNA Nettipulssi -palvelun. Yleisimmät kodin verkkohaasteet johtuvat WiFi-verkosta, mutta niitä on ollut aiemmin haastava havaita.

Turussa jo yli sata DNA:n 5G-tukiasemaa! Näin verkko on laajentunut kaupungissa reilun vuoden aikana10.2.2021 10:30:00 EETTiedote

DNA:n 5G-verkko on toiminut Turussa jo yli vuoden verran, minkä aikana uutta teknologiaa on otettu käyttöön vauhdilla: joulukuussa avattiin jo Turun sadas DNA:n 5G-tukiasema. Turun 5G-valloitus lähti liikkeelle vuotta aiemmin joulukuussa 2019 kaupungin keskustan liepeiltä, kun ensimmäinen, Nummen ja Itäharjun kaupunginosia palveleva tukiasema otettiin käyttöön. Sen jälkeen peitto Turussa ja sen ympäristössä on tihentynyt niin, että Maskusta voi nyt ajella Armonlaaksoon tai Naantalista Kaarinaan poistumatta 5G-alueelta.

Tampereella jo yli sata DNA:n 5G-tukiasemaa! Verkko kattaa ratikan reitin lähes kokonaan – näin rakentaminen on edennyt10.2.2021 10:30:00 EETTiedote

DNA:n 5G-verkko on toiminut Tampereella jo yli vuoden verran, minkä aikana uutta teknologiaa on otettu käyttöön vauhdilla: tammikuussa avattiin jo Tampereen sadas DNA:n 5G-tukiasema. Tampereen 5G-valloitus lähti liikkeelle joulukuussa 2019 kaupungin läntisimmistä osista, kun ensimmäinen tukiasema otettiin käyttöön Kalkussa. Sen jälkeen peitto on tihentynyt Tampereella ja sen ympäristössä niin, että Hakametsästä voi nyt ajella aina Nokialle tai Ylöjärvelle asti poistumatta 5G-alueelta. Myös loppukesästä avattavan ratikan reitti on lähes kokonaan 5G-peiton alla.
