A fixed Internet connection is available in every PSOAS student apartment
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 and Virkakatu 3 the house wiring is different from the other locations and therefore the internet service requires a cable modem in these locations. The modem is provided by PSOAS.
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. For more information on the higher bandwidths and other services available, click here.
Inside the apartments one of the data sockets is connected at a time. 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€.
Register your subscription by calling the DNA Customer Service, tel. +358 44 144 044 or by visiting your nearest DNA Kauppa store.
