Consumers union calls for better offer from UPC-Ziggo

Thursday 13 November 2014 | 11:06 CET | News
The Dutch consumers union has called on Ziggo to ensure its customers profit from the cable company's merger with UPC. According to the consumer group, the merger offers a unique opportunity to deliver the best possible offering of TV, telephony and internet. It also called on consumers to post on the union's website what they'd like to see happen after the merger. The merger of Ziggo and UPC will create a "monster provider" with around 4 million customers, the consumer group said. It wants the companies to take the best elements of each of their packages to make a new offer to customers.
