Friday 19 January 2018 | 09:52 CET | News
The introduction of unlimited data bundles has accelerated the growth in mobile data traffic in the Netherlands, according to the ACM's latest market monitor. Total mobile data traffic (3G and 4G) rose in the second quarter of 2017 by 25 percent compared to the first three months of the year, to 77 billion MB. This followed the launch of T-Mobile's unlimited plan in January and Tele2's offer in May.
