DNA has started selling 5G phone and broadband subscriptions, ahead of rolling out services to 20 locations in Finland early this year.
DNA’s fixed-wireless access (FWA) 5G services are currently available in Helsinki, Vantaa, Tampere, Turku and Hyvinkää.
Build-out in these areas will continue and DNA is launching its mobile 5G network in Espoo, Oulu, Jyväskylä, Lahti, Kuopio, Vaasa, Hämeenlinna, Seinäjoki, Rauma, Pori, Raisio, Heinola, Nokia, Pirkkala, Ylöjärvi, Lempäälä, Sipoo, Rusko and Lieto.
DNA previously said it would not start offering 5G subscription services “until the 5G network is comprehensive enough to genuinely serve our customers and there [are] more technologically advanced 5G phone models available.”
Pekka Väisänen, Senior Vice President, Consumer Business, DNA, said, “Today, the offering of high-quality 5G terminal devices is still limited, and the second-generation 5G smartphones are only just beginning to be launched.
“Several interesting models will be published during the annual mobile industry exhibition in Barcelona in the end of February. We will begin selling them immediately when the device manufacturers are able to supply them.”
In December 2019, DNA launched its DNA Home 5G service – broadband aimed particularly at detached homes, where a fibre-optic connection is not available or would be very expensive to build. The service is available in the Helsinki Metropolitan Region, Tampere and Turku but DNA plans to expand it this year.
Phone packages start at €31.90/month for 400 Mbps and €49.90 a month for 1000 Mbps. All subscriptions have unlimited data and EU data packages as well as unlimited calls and messages.
Corporate packages offer mobile and broadband speeds of 600 Mbps and 1000 Mbps. All corporate 5G subscriptions include unlimited data usage in Finland, the Nordic countries and the Baltics as well as EU data packages.
The subscriptions are available through all DNA sales channels.
