Fixed Internet connection is available in PSOAS apartments.

The connection is offered together with the Internet service provider DNA. DNA’s product name for the service is the Housing Company Broadband. The service is based on the Ethernet technology and it can be used by connecting the computer to the wall socket with a data cable. There is no need for a router unless the tenant wants to setup a wifi of their own. For exchange students a PSOAS maintained wifi is offered (more information on the bottom of this page).

In Tapiontie 7 the house wiring is different from the other locations and therefore the Internet service requires a cable modem. The modem is provided by PSOAS and you may get one from the housing office.

100 Mb/s bandwidth included in the rent

As a PSOAS tenant you will have access to 100 Mb/s bandwidth free of charge. For a monthly fee you can update your subscription for 200 Mb/s or even up to 1 Gb/s. There are also other services available for competitive prices.

Inside the apartments one of the data sockets is connected at a time. In family apartments the bedroom socket is the active one. In the new and recently renovated buildings it is possible for the tenant to change the active socket themselves but in most houses such changes must be performed by DNA. Having the socket changed costs 50€.

Setup instructions:
