KPN upgrades copper network to 200 Mbps

Thursday 2 April 2015 | 14:51 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
KPN plans a major upgrade of its copper access network in the next year and a half. In a large part of the Netherlands, the operator will be able to offer speeds up to 200/60 Mbps once its street cabinets are ready for vectoring and pair bonding. The products will also be offered on a wholesale basis, through new virtual access products for alternative operators. KPN said it has nearly completed negotiations with wholesale customers and regulator ACM on the new services.
