5G Network Frequencies

DNA has built its 5G Network across Finland primarily using either the lower 700 MHz frequency or, the higher 3.5 GHz frequency. The lower Frequency allows for fast, widespread network coverage with good indoor penetration.

Lower Frequency Provides Coverage: According to the telco, 5G network on lower frequency bands typically reaches several kilometers from the base station, depending on the terrain.

Higher Frequency provides Speeds: The higher frequency range, on the other hand, provides gigabit kind of connection speeds with low latency over a smaller coverage area.

The lower Frequency is usually used in rural areas and sparsely populated towns, while the higher Frequency is used in urban areas.
