Finnish operator DNA is to start offering fixed 5G broadband services in December, initially in single-family dwelling units in Helsinki, Tampere and Turku before expanding to other large cities next year. The Telenor arm has been piloting the service in Vantaa and Hyvinkaa but will soon progress to commercial operation. It said this will provide fast data internet connectivity to buildings not passed by fibre or where it would be expensive.
