EQT Infrastructure III, a fund of the Swedish investor EQT, has agreed to acquire Dutch operator CIF and its unit CAIW from the local investor Rabo Bouwfonds CIF. The deal includes passive and active FTTH and cable infrastructure and services, both retail (Caiway) and wholesale (to customers such as Fiber NL/M7 and Solcon/KPN). The assets will be combined with the earlier acquired Delta, which also operates a network (Delta) and services (ZeelandNet and energy). CIF earlier sold its 800 tower sites in the Netherlands to the pension fund ABP.
