Network Expansion and Upgrades

Telia stated that the expansion of the 5G network will enhance connectivity quality, enriching the lives of local residents and businesses. Telia noted, "In Finland too, there is still a lot to do in order to get equal connections everywhere."

Private 5G Networks

According to Telia, large companies can build private 5G networks with low latency, guaranteed capacity, and a closed network for secure real-time usage. In areas with high 5G frequency, fixed 5G offers fibre like internet for offices with guaranteed capacity. In Smaller companies, 5G can be used to build a complete telecom infrastructure on top of mobile connections, serving all needs - mobile work, office, home, backup connection and connection sharing - with a single high-speed connection.
