Ericsson and DNA Plc. have introduced the new 700-MHz spectrum for mobile broadband as of February 1, 2017, following the conditions of the radio license granted by the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority. The spectrum previously used for digital television enables build-up of 4G capacity, particularly in sparsely populated areas. DNA's 4G network today covers 99 percent of the population in Finland. As Finns are among the most active users of mobile data in the world, it is essential to ensure future capacity of the network.
Ericsson Radio System's technology used in the DNA network includes the new frequency band scales to increasing demands on the road to 5G with multi-standard, multi-band, and multi-layer technology. The system gives network operators the infrastructure they need to support growing mobile data traffic needs.
