Commenting on the launch of the pilot project, DNA Business Manager for Mobile Communication Subscriptions Mika Husso said, “We want to continuously bring our customers new technologies that improve their experience. We will be testing these new technologies with our customers during the spring, and will then gradually make the technologies available to all our 4G mobile communication subscribers.”

“We will be testing these new technologies with our customers during the spring, and will then gradually make the technologies available to all our 4G mobile communication subscribers,” Husso announced.

According to a statement released by the company, the 4G networks of DNA currently carry only data whilst all calls are transmitted across 2G and 3G networks. The VoLTE makes it possible to make phone calls across 4G networks, resulting in better voice quality and a reduction in the connection time of calls to a fraction than what it’s currently offering.

DNA’s VoWiFi technology allows users to make phone calls from their home, office, or public places such as airports using Wi-Fi, thereby improving voice quality and indoor reception. Wi-Fi calls made abroad will also typically be cheaper than normal roaming calls.
