Finnish cablenet DNA has achieved a record internet speed of 3.055 Gbps.
The new top speed was achieved using the DOCSIS 3.1 network technology and was demonstrated during the launch event for DNA Valokuitu Plus (DNA Fibre Optic Plus) on Monday.
It’s expected the new service will offer broadband speeds of up to a Gigabit per second for over a half a million households without any changes to housing company networks.
“DNA Valokuitu Plus is the first step in making top broadband speeds easily available to hundreds of thousands of people in Finland. The network utilises Docsis 3.0 technology. The speed record was broken with the next-generation DOCSIS 3.1 technology. In a few years, connection speeds of up to ten Gigabits, as seen in the speed record event, will be available to all households connected to our cable network,” says DNA’s head of product development Ville Partanen.
The operator says that speed records are much easier to beat in test conditions.
DNA’s partners in the speed record demonstration were network technology company Casa Systems and modem manufacturer Sagemcom.
