Gigabit-class broadband speeds became available to the more than 620,000 households in the DNA Valokuitu Plus (DNA Fibre Optic Plus) network.
We took a step towards 5G by increasing our mobile network top speed: we tested a speed of 1 Gbps in our network.
DNA’s work to improve personnel satisfaction was recognised again, this time with the Great Place to Work® certificate in October 2017.
We were the first company in Finland to introduce grandparental leave, and the leave was rewarded as the Working Life Action of the year in late 2017 in the 100 Actions campaign organised by Ilmarinen Mutual Pension Insurance Company.
DNA’s mobile communication network became NB-IoT (Narrow Band Internet of Things) ready, which makes it possible to connect a broad range of devices to the mobile network, thus encouraging the use of IoT.
We were the first operator in Finland to launch a new Android TV device, called DNA TV-hubi. The device combines a set-top box, online applications, games and music to one, easy-to-use entertainment system.
In October 2017, we opened trading at the Nasdaq stock market in New York in honour of our listing a year ago. We had an excellent first year as a listed company.
The final highlight of DNA’s year was being chosen as the Digital Leader 2018 in the study measuring digital maturity in the Nordic countries by consulting company BearingPoint.
