DNA Oyj (DNA) is a Finnish on telecommunications company. It was founded in 2000, and refounded in 2007 after a merger.

DNA offers cellular phone services, ADSL, terrestrial television (DVB-T/DVB-T2), cable television (DVB-C) and regular (landline) telephone service.

DNA was founded as the cell phone operator of the Finnet group of telephone cooperatives after there was a split-up in the association. The Helsinki Telephone Association (now Elisa Oyj) left Finnet and they needed to find a new owner, which they did in 2000.

In 2006, there began to be new difficulties between the remaining Finnet companies. The largest members merged themselves with DNA and left the association.

In 2012, DNA challenged a long-time dominated Digita Oy in the Finnish terrestrial television-network markets, and construction of its own competing digital- terrestrial television-network with DVB-T2-technology.

In 2013, DNA acquired the monopoly (in the Finnish market) Pay-per-view-television provider PlusTV, from the Swedish state owned radio and television network operator Teracom AB.

PlusTV offers a Pay-per-view television services, on Digita's and DNA's own digital terrestrial television networks, with DVB-T/MPEG-2 and DVB-T2/MPEG-4 technologies.
