Dutch Parliament wants 100 Mbps for all earlier, by 2023

Wednesday 28 March 2018 | 18:33 CET | News
The Dutch Lower Chamber of Parliament wants the whole country to have access to broadband of at least 100 Mbps by 2023. A motion to this effect was supported by a large majority of the political parties on 28 March. The political groups have asked the government to include this objective in the Digital Connectivity Action Plan. Government policy is still aiming to reach 100 Mbps by 2025, but Parliament believes this is now possible now that 91 percent of consumers already have access to that speed. The European Commission presented this target in 2010.
