France and Netherlands target 2012 for NFC roll out

Thursday 7 April 2011 | 11:36 CET | Author: Marion ter Welle | Background
Many new trials in the NFC field continue to be announced and it is now clear that in at least two Western European countries a national roll-out will start in 2012. The Six Pack initiative in the Netherlands and the CityZi project in France have both confirmed that national roll-out in 2012 is their target. During 2011 CityZi will expand its service from Nice to a few more cities in France in preparation for the national roll-out.
