DNA becomes the first operator In Finland to adopt a new phone pricing model

DNA is adopting a new phone pricing model. The DNA Takuuhinta concept provides DNA’s webstore and DNA Stores with up-to-date information about the pricing of various retailers. DNA’s pricing is then automatically matched to the lowest market price at that moment without the customer needing to do anything.

The new pricing model relies on an automated price comparison system that updates every hour and searches for the lowest price for a given device among select phone retailers*. When you buy a phone from the webstore, the system automatically matches its price to the lowest market price at that moment. When you buy a phone from a DNA Store, the salesperson will check the price comparison before the sale and, if necessary, match the price with the current lowest offer.

The concept ensures DNA’s phone pricing is always in line with the company’s promise, and customers get a clear comparison when shopping online. To ensure the system is transparent, the prices of the tracked vendors are displayed on DNA’s website.

“We at DNA are very excited about this, because we are the first operator to offer a service like this. Especially during times like these, when inflation is high and consumer prices are rising in general, we want to make people’s lives easier by helping them find the right phone for the lowest price. With DNA Takuuhinta, consumers save not only money but also time they would otherwise spend comparing prices”, says DNA’s Vice President, Mobile Business Cedric Kamtsan.

“If one of the tracked vendors has a lower listed price for a phone on their webstore than DNA does, the customer will still get the lowest price from DNA. In other words, DNA’s price is changed to match the lowest compared price”, Kamtsan summarises.

DNA Takuuhinta also affects special offers and takes into account all products that are available for immediate purchase on the webstores of tracked retailers. However, not all special offers available at individual brick-and-mortar stores can necessarily be tracked.

“DNA Takuuhinta covers DNA phone sales across Finland, both in our webstore and at DNA Stores. It is a clear improvement to the phone buying experience”, Kamtsan says.

“Today, phones are practically essential. That’s why it is so important to make it easy for people to find the right phone for as low a price as possible”, Kamtsan concludes.

*The compared retailers are Elisa, Telia, Verkkokauppa.com, Gigantti, Power and Veikon Kone

Lähes 40 prosenttia suomalaisista kokee digipalvelujen haittaavan keskittymistä – Älyvapaapäivänä 1.10. laitteet laitetaan sivuun22.9.2023 10:30:00 EEST | Tiedote

DNA:n vuosittaisen Digitaalinen elämä -tutkimuksen mukaan lähes 40 prosenttia suomalaisista kokee jatkuvan digipalvelujen käytön haittaavan keskittymiskykyään. Älylaitteiden käyttöä tahdotaan rajoittaa omatoimisesti, mutta moni pitää sitä vaikeana. Digitaalisuuden positiiviset ja negatiiviset puolet korostuvat varsinkin nuoremmissa ikäryhmissä. Etenkin alle 35-vuotiaat pitävät puhelimelta irrottautumista haastavana. Silti vanhempien arvion mukaan jopa 36 prosenttia 13–16-vuotiaista nuorista on halunnut itse rajoittaa puhelimen parissa viettämäänsä aikaa. Toisen kerran 1.10.2023 vietettävä Älyvapaapäivä haastaa jokaisen laittamaan älylaitteet sivuun.

DNA:n asiakkaat käyttävät eniten mobiilidataa Euroopassa, kertoo tuore raportti – datamääriä kasvattaa etenkin liikkuva kuva21.9.2023 09:45:00 EEST | Tiedote

DNA:n asiakkaat käyttivät alkuvuonna eniten liittymäkohtaista mobiilidataa Euroopassa ja olivat myös koko maailman kärkijoukoissa, kertoo tutkimusyhtiö Tefficientin tuore raportti**. DNA:n asiantuntija sanoo etenkin liikkuvan kuvan yleistymisen kasvattavan datamääriä.
