The coverage of DNA's 5G network already includes 50% of Finnish residences, i.e. almost 2.8 million people, in a total of 114 different towns. The most recent locations connected to the network are Aura, Ikaalinen, Kirkkonummi, Pertunmaa, Vesilahti and Äänekoski. With regional expansions and an improved range of 5G devices, the strong growth of the popularity of 5G services continues.

  • In Aura, 5G coverage has initially been brought to the area between Horsmamäki and Isoniitty.
  • In Ikaalinen, 5G coverage spans the Läykkälä and Sarkkilanjärvi districts quite comprehensively. The coverage also partly includes Hakumäki and Karhoinen.
  • In Kirkkonummi, several 5G base stations have already been built, and the coverage they offer extensively reaches the residential areas north of the railway line between Jorvas and Ravals.
  • In Pertunmaa, 5G coverage includes the area of the municipality's village.
  • In Vesilahti, 5G coverage includes the area of the municipality's village.
  • In Äänekoski, the constructed 5G coverage includes the areas of Pukkimäki and Äänejärvi. In the near future, Karhunlähde, Römmi, Likolahti, Markkamäki and Mustaniemi will also be fully or partially connected to the 5G area.

DNA's 5G network is being built comprehensively throughout Finland, currently especially in the Helsinki metropolitan area and the Lahti, Pori, Porvoo, Seinäjoki, Tampere Turku and Vaasa regions. 

Finnish Shared Network Ltd, a company jointly owned by DNA Plc and Telia Finland Oyj, is building the 5G network in northern and eastern Finland. The three-year construction project started in March and has progressed rapidly. This year, Finnish Shared Network will open even more new base stations extensively in southeast Finland and at ski resorts in northern Finland. In addition, the shared network is expanding to the Pieksämäki, Oulu and Kuopio areas this year.

DNA continuously monitors the usage volumes and capacity adequacy of its mobile network. Based on the statistics, the network is renewed driven by needs. This means that older base stations will be replaced in locations where the need for additional transfer rates or capacity is the greatest. With new base station technology, 4G transfer rates and user experience will also improve. 

“The rapid expansion of the 5G network and the diversification of the range 5G devices are clearly reflected in the growing popularity of 5G. In August, 70% of the phones sold by DNA were 5G models, and the share of mobile data transferred on the 5G network has almost quadrupled during the current year,” sums up Jarkko Laari, VP, Radio Networks, DNA.

DNA's 5G services can already be used in the following 114 towns:

Akaa, Alajärvi, Asikkala, Askola, Aura, Espoo, Eura, Eurajoki, Forssa, Haapavesi, Hanko, Harjavalta, Hattula, Hausjärvi, Heinola, Helsinki, Hollola, Hyvinkää, Hämeenlinna, Ii, Ikaalinen, Ilmajoki, Isokyrö, Janakkala, Jokioinen, Joroinen, Juupajoki, Jyväskylä, Jämsä, Järvenpää, Kaarina, Kangasala, Kankaanpää, Karkkila, Kaskinen, Kauhava, Kauniainen, Kerava, Kirkkonummi, Kokemäki, Kokkola, Kouvola, Kristiinankaupunki, Kruunupyy, Kuopio, Kurikka, Kärkölä, Lahti, Laihia, Lapua, Laukaa, Lempäälä, Leppävirta, Lieto, Liminka, Lohja, Loimaa, Masku, Merikarvia, Muhos, Mäntsälä, Naantali, Nakkila, Nivala, Nokia, Nurmijärvi, Orimattila, Orivesi, Oulu, Padasjoki, Paimio, Parainen, Pedersöre, Pertunmaa, Pietarsaari, Pirkkala, Pori, Porvoo, Punkalaidun, Pyhäjoki, Pälkäne, Pöytyä, Raahe, Raasepori, Raisio, Rauma, Riihimäki, Rusko, Saarijärvi, Salo, Sastamala, Seinäjoki, Siilinjärvi, Sipoo, Siuntio, Somero, Suonenjoki, Sysmä, Säkylä, Tampere, Teuva, Turku, Tuusula, Ulvila, Uusikaupunki, Vaasa, Valkeakoski, Vantaa, Vesilahti, Varkaus, Vihti, Ylivieska, Ylöjärvi and Äänekoski.

When 4G was introduced people around the world laughed at Finns – DNA Vice President describes how the joking ultimately turned into wonder and why Finland became a 5G pioneer that is letting go of old technology15.9.2021 09:00:00 EEST | Press release

In August 2021, DNA announced that it is closing its 3G network in Finland, bringing an end to an era of one mobile technology. Few people know that the reason behind Finland being able to abandon old forms of technology and quickly adopt new ones is a special Finnish characteristic that was once made fun of abroad. The jokes have transformed into wonder: how is a small northern country able to do this? The answer can be found in Finland’s long history with mobile and network technology and an exceptional pricing model.

Kun 4G otettiin käyttöön, suomalaisille naureskeltiin maailmalla – DNA:n johtaja kertoo, kuinka nauru muuttui lopulta ihmettelyksi ja miksi Suomi on nyt 5G:n edelläkävijä – ja luopumassa vanhasta teknologiasta15.9.2021 09:00:00 EEST | Tiedote

DNA ilmoitti elokuussa 2021 ajavansa 3G-verkkonsa alas Suomessa ja samalla yksi mobiiliteknologian aikakausi tulee päätökseen. Harva kuitenkaan tietää, että syy siihen, miksi Suomessa voidaan luopua vanhasta teknologiasta ja ottaa nopeasti käyttöön uutta, johtuu suomalaisesta erityispiirteestä, jolle aikoinaan maailmalla jopa naureskeltiin. Nyt nauru on muuttunut ihmettelyn aiheeksi: kuinka yksi pieni pohjoinen maa oikein pystyy tuohon? Syyt löytyvät Suomen mobiili- ja verkkoteknologian pitkästä historiasta sekä poikkeuksellisesta hinnoittelumallista.

DNA tutki: tässä ovat suomalaisten suoratoistosuosikit – kaksi selkeästi ylitse muiden9.9.2021 09:00:00 EEST | Tiedote

Netflix on selkeästi suomalaisten eniten käyttämä maksullinen suoratoistopalvelu, kertoo DNA:n teettämä tutkimus. Maksuttomista palveluista Yle Areenalla on vankka asema, ja se peittoaa suosiossa jopa YouTuben. Suomalaiset ovat myös ahkeria suoratoistopalveluiden tilaajia, sillä viidesosalla on käytössään vähintään kolme maksullista palvelua ilmaisten lisäksi.

DNA:n 5G-peitto kattaa puolet suomalaisista – paikkakuntia jo 114, uusina Aura, Ikaalinen, Kirkkonummi, Pertunmaa, Vesilahti ja Äänekoski8.9.2021 09:30:00 EEST | Tiedote

DNA:n 5G-verkon peittoalue kattaa jo 50 % suomalaisten asuinpaikoista, eli lähes 2,8 miljoonaa ihmistä, yhteensä 114 eri paikkakunnalla. Tuoreimmat verkkoon liitetyt paikkakunnat ovat Aura, Ikaalinen, Kirkkonummi, Pertunmaa, Vesilahti ja Äänekoski. Aluelaajennusten ja parantuneen 5G-laitevalikoiman myötä 5G-palveluiden suosio on edelleen selvässä kasvussa.
