Finnish operator DNA has upgraded its entire fixed broadband network and will make available new broadband speeds on the acquired Welho network for nearly 1 million Finnish households in May. The maximum speed on the cable network will be 200 Mbps, while the entry-level connection will be 10 Mbps. At the same time, DNA's ADSL products will be updated. More than 900,000 Finnish households are covered by DNA's fully upgraded fixed broadband network, of which approximately two thirds are on the cable network. In conjunction with its new fixed broadband offerings, DNA will introduce a guarantee on speed and terms of service, enabling customers to obtain a fixed broadband connection without a fixed-term commitment.
 
As of May, the new products will be available at all locations covered by DNA's fixed network, namely the capital area and the Oulu, Pori, Lahti, Kuopio, Turku, Rauma and Lohja regions. Those interested in the new offer can submit their e-mail address at dna.fi/nopeat and they will be given more information on the update in May. Existing subscriptions will not be automatically updated to the new products, but if existing subscribers wish to do so, they may switch their existing subscription to a new one.
