DNA is launching faster broadband and next-generation television services for housing companies and householders across the Tampere region in South Finland.
The company has agreed to purchase an extensive fibre network infrastructure used by ICT Elmo Oy (formerly Tampereen Puhelin) as well as Elmo’s consumer and housing company business. The sellers are ICT Elmo Oy as well as Pohjois-Hämeen Puhelin Oy and Ikaalisten-Parkanon Puhelin Oy. The transaction will be effective immediately.
“We are extremely happy with the acquisition. Tampere is the second biggest market area in Finland, and it is important for us to have a strong presence and be able to offer our full range of services here. We intend to invest heavily in making both 5G and our fibre-optic and cable networks available to housing companies and single-family houses across the region. Thanks to this acquisition, we will be able to provide our customers with gigabit-speed broadband and a wide range of television services,” says Jarno Haikonen, DNA’s Vice President, Broadband and TV Business.
