New challenges for Reggefiber under new director

Friday 17 April 2015 | 11:41 CET | Author: Erik Compter | Background
KPN is a shareholder in the Dutch FTTH network operator Reggefiber since 2008 and recently took 100 percent control of the company. KPN's decision to slow the fibre roll-out and focus also on upgrading its VDSL network signals a new period for Reggefiber. The operator has also seen a change in management, with the departure of Bert Nijboer and Jan Davids in the past year, and the arrival of the new CEO Elmer Wiemer (38) in March. Wiemer reports to Joost Farwerck, managing director for KPN Netherlands. Telecompaper recently spoke with Wiemer, who has held a number of positions at Reggefiber
