DNA, the leading operator in Finland has launched a new-generation fibre optic network, dubbed as DNA Valokuitu Plus (DNA Fibre Optic Plus) that will provide broadband speeds of up to 1Gbps, which will be enabled without any changes to existing in-building network. The DNA Valokuitu Plus will cover a total of over 600,000 households, said DNA.
During the first phase, the connection will be available to about 300,000 households in the Helsinki Metropolitan region, extending to more than 600,000 households within a year. Over the course of the next few years, DNA will be bringing the speeds to 10Gbit/s, said the Operator in its statement. The initial launch of the DNA Valokuitu Plus network in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area will be followed by launches in Oulu and its neighbouring towns. The DNA Valokuitu Plus subscriptions and new modems will be available from 10 May through DNA’s sales channels, added DNA.
