Cable holds future of a Dutch national fibre network in its hands

Monday 16 January 2012 | 17:49 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
Will the Netherlands get a national fibre optic network? That is the burning, long-term question. At KPN, there has already, to some extent, been talk of separating networks from services, and that would also apply to fibre networks, all being rolled out by Reggefiber. If CIF buys enough cable networks and rolls out enough fibre ones, than the same could happen in the cable domain. But only when the KPN network is brought together with the cable networks would there be a single, national infrastructure.
