Dutch broadcaster NOS reports that the roll-out of fibre optics in the Netherlands is slowing. In 2013, 300,000 houses were connected to fibre in a six-month period. In the last six months however, the number had fallen to less than 50,000, according to a study by consultancy Stratix, commissioned by NOS. In the last six months (September 2016 to March 2017) 48,000 new connections were delivered, against 57,000 in the period March 2016 to September 2016.
