Wednesday 20 June 2012 | 13:11 CET | News
Investor CIF will continue to back Caiway, after the proposed takeover of the services provider by KPN was blocked by competition regulators, according to CIF partner Randolf Nijsse, at the Telecompaper Breedband 2012 conference. CIF plans to look for other partners to help strengthen Caiway's position on the broadband market. Caiway will also offer from the fourth quarter a new package as well as an ODF access service. It will also look at expanding outside the Netherlands.
