DNA has recently extended its 5G network to Huittinen, Juupajoki, Närpes, Oripää, Parkano, Pyhäranta and Urjala. Overall, DNA’s 5G network covers an estimated 70 % of Finland’s population, which translates to over 3,8 million people across 173 municipalities. DNA’s comprehensive coverage map makes checking 5G coverage and available speeds in your area easy.

  • In Juupajoki, Pirkanmaa, the 5G network covers the Korkeakoski area comprehensively.
  • In Parkano, Pirkanmaa, the 5G network covers the town centre and the surrounding neighbourhoods in a radius of a couple of kilometres. In the town centre area, the 5G network operates at both the lower 700-megahertz frequency band and the faster, higher 3.5-gigahertz frequency band.
  • In Urjala, Pirkanmaa, the 5G network currently only covers the Nuutajärvi area, but a second base station will be brought online in Urjala’s village centre later this autumn.
  • In Närpes, Ostrobothnia, the 5G network comprehensively covers the town centre and surrounding areas thanks to a pair of base stations.
  • In Huittinen, Satakunta, the 5G network covers Lauttakylä in the town centre and the surrounding areas. 5G coverage will be improving further through September and October as two new base stations come online in the areas surrounding the town centre.
  • In Oripää, Southwest Finland, the5G network covers residential areas in the village centre and the areas southeast of it.
  • In Pyhäranta, Southwest Finland, the 5G network comprehensively covers Kaunissaari and Reila, as well as surrounding areas, and will expand to comprehensively cover the high-density area of Ihode through September and October.

“In most of these places, the 5G network mainly operates in the 700-megahertz frequency band. This allows us to achieve good indoor coverage and extensive 5G coverage, which we will be extending in all localities at a later date. It is always wonderful to get the opportunity to introduce people in new areas to 5G services. With faster connections, many people across Finland, such as knowledge workers, will be able to work from wherever they want more extensively. In many cases, 5G also offers an excellent alternative to fixed-network broadband at home, which improves the area’s competitiveness and expands consumers’ options,” says Jarkko Laari, Director, Radio Networks at DNA.

DNA is building a 5G network that can operate in both the lower 700-megahertz and higher 3.5-gigahertz frequency bands. Lower frequencies offer a fast connection that is more than sufficient for normal Internet use and allow the network to cover a large area with good indoor coverage. Higher frequencies, on the other hand, offer gigabit-class connection speeds with minimal delay over a smaller coverage area. Lower frequencies are typically used in rural areas and less-densely populated urban areas, whereas higher frequencies are used in more-densely populated urban areas.

DNA’s coverage map can be found at www.dna.fi/5G and accurately shows what kind of mobile network is available in your area. You can use the map to check the theoretical maximum speed of the 4G or 5G network anywhere in Finland. By clicking on Lisätietoja verkosta, you can also view the frequencies the 4G and 5G networks in the selected area operate in. More than one frequency may be in use in the same area, in which case your device will usually select the best option automatically. You can also view ongoing network upgrades by selecting Verkon parannustyöt in the left-hand menu. The map is updated with a slight delay, so the latest upgrades are not necessarily visible yet.

The construction of the 5G network also has the effect of updating the entire mobile network, as it requires old base stations to be replaced with new ones. This means faster 4G speeds and an improved user experience in the areas where the network is being modernised. The use of 5G services requires a suitable device and subscription.

DNA’s 5G network already covers the following 173 municipalities:

Akaa, Alajärvi, Alavus, Asikkala, Askola, Aura, Enonkoski, Espoo, Eura, Eurajoki, Evijärvi, Forssa, Haapavesi, Hanko, Harjavalta, Hartola, Hattula, Hausjärvi, Heinola, Heinävesi, Helsinki, Hollola, Huittinen, Humppila, Hyvinkää, Hämeenkyrö, Hämeenlinna, Ii, Iitti, Ikaalinen, Ilmajoki, Imatra, Inari, Inkoo, Isokyrö, Janakkala, Joensuu, Jokioinen, Joroinen, Joutsa, Juupajoki, Juva, Jyväskylä, Jämsä, Järvenpää, Kaarina, Kangasala, Kankaanpää, Karkkila, Karstula, Kaskinen, Kauhajoki, Kauhava, Kauniainen, Kaustinen, Kemiönsaari, Kerava, Kirkkonummi, Kitee, Kittilä, Kokemäki, Kokkola, Kolari, Kouvola, Kristinestad, Kronoby, Kuopio, Kurikka, Kustavi, Kuusamo, Kärkölä, Lahti, Laihia, Lappeenranta, Lapua, Laukaa, Lempäälä, Leppävirta, Lieto, Liminka, Liperi, Lohja, Loimaa, Loppi, Luhanka, Luoto, Masku, Merikarvia, Mikkeli, Muhos, Muurame, Mynämäki, Myrskylä, Mäntsälä, Mänttä-Vilppula, Naantali, Nakkila, Nivala, Nokia, Nousiainen, Nurmijärvi, Närpes, Orimattila, Oripää, Orivesi, Oulu, Padasjoki, Paimio, Parainen, Parikkala, Parkano, Pedersöre municipality, Pertunmaa, Pieksämäki, Jakobstad, Pirkkala, Pori, Pornainen, Porvoo, Punkalaidun, Puumala, Pyhäjoki, Pyhäranta, Pälkäne, Pöytyä, Raahe, Raseborg, Raisio, Rantasalmi, Rauma, Rautjärvi, Riihimäki, Ruokolahti, Ruovesi, Rusko, Rääkkylä, Saarijärvi, Salo, Sastamala, Sauvo, Savonlinna, Seinäjoki, Siilinjärvi, Sipoo, Siuntio, Somero, Sulkava, Suonenjoki, Sysmä, Säkylä, Taipalsaari, Taivassalo, Tammela, Tampere, Teuva, Tohmajärvi, Turku, Tuusula, Ulvila, Urjala, Nykarleby, Uusikaupunki, Vaasa, Valkeakoski, Vantaa, Varkaus, Vehmaa, Vesilahti, Vihti, Virrat, Ylivieska, Ylöjärvi and Äänekoski.

Five tips for a smart-device-free day – “It’s a good idea to stop for a day and think about your relationship with that device”28.9.2022 08:10:00 EEST | Press release

This coming Sunday, October 2nd, will be a Disconnect Day in Finland. The Disconnect Day is a theme day organised by DNA that focuses on the importance of spending time together face to face and encourages everyone who can to deliberately put their devices aside. The Disconnect Day is inspired by a survey that found that Finns generally want to reduce the time they spend on smart devices. Five families tested the Disconnect Day concept in advance and found it has significant positive effects, such as a greater sense of restfulness.

Viisi vinkkiä älylaitteettoman päivän viettoon – “On hyvä edes päiväksi pysähtyä miettimään omaa suhdetta siihen laitteeseen”28.9.2022 08:10:00 EEST | Tiedote

Tulevana sunnuntaina 2. lokakuuta vietetään Suomessa Älyvapaapäivää. Kyseessä on läsnäolon merkitystä korostava DNA:n toteuttama teemapäivä, joka kannustaa kaikkia mahdollisuuksiensa mukaan laittamaan älylaitteet kyseisenä päivänä tarkoituksellisesti sivuun. Taustalla on tutkimuksesta ilmennyt suomalaisten tahtotila vähentää älylaitteilla käytettyä aikaa. Viisi perhettä testasi Älyvapaapäivän viettoa ennakkoon ja havaitsi siinä keskeisiä positiivisia vaikutuksia, kuten levollinen olotila.

Survey results indicate that almost half of all Finns feel that they spend too much time on smart devices – Disconnect Day encourages everyone to focus on what is in front of them16.9.2022 08:15:00 EEST | Press release

Smart devices and networks are needed to make everyday life as easy and straightforward as possible. On the other hand, the amount of time we spend on smart devices and the effects of excessive use have been the subject of a long and protracted public conversation. DNA has studied people’s attitudes towards the use of smart devices and found that as much as 44 per cent of Finns feel that they spend too much time on their devices. To give us all a good reason to focus on what is in front of us instead of on our smart devices at least once a year, DNA is encouraging everyone who can to take a Disconnect Day on the 2nd of October and deliberately put their devices aside.
