De Wolden FTTH roll-out starts

Friday 21 October 2016 | 11:12 CET | News
The group Glasvezel De Wolden announced that the roll-out of a fibre network in the Dutch city has started. The areas Koekange, Ruinerwold and Oosteinde will be covered first, and if successful, the network expanded to the other parts of De Wolden, which is southwest Drenthe. In May, the group completed a campaign to sign up enough local residents for services to make the network viable and also secured a loan. It's not yet known which service providers will be active on the network.
