DNA is to upgrade its entire fixed broadband network, bringing top speeds of 200 Mbps to nearly a million Finnish households this May.

The move will bring DNA’s ADSL customers into line with those on the Welho cable network, acquired by the telco last summer, and which already runs speeds in the region of 200 Mbps. Entry level speeds will now be set at 10 Mbps.

“Playing games, listening to music and watching films and other videos increasingly takes place online. Households also watch more TV via the internet. Broadband use now means versatile consumption of entertainment services, so people have higher demands for broadband capacity,” says Pekka Väisänen, DNA’s vice president, consumer business.

A number of customer satisfaction guarantees are also being introduced
