GlasDraad, Glasvezel buitenaf both active in Woerden, Oudewater

Thursday 12 July 2018 | 15:21 CET | News
Both GlasDraad and Glasvezel buitenaf will deploy fibre in the rural areas of ​​Woerden and Oudewater. Both parties have held registration procedures and received the requisite number of signatures. Initially, the two parties went for a registration rate of 50 percent, but because of the competition, this was reduced to 40 percent.

GlasDraad says that it will talk to Glasvezel buitenaf to see if the companies can bundle work in Woerden and so cause minimal inconvenience for residents. Construction is expected to start in the last quarter of this year.

Preparation for deploying fibre

GlasDraad Groene Hart Zuid, as the project in this region is called, includes Bodegraven-Reeuwijk, as well as Woerden and Oudewater. GlasDraad earlier concluded a successful registration process for the outskirts of Kaag and Braassem, Nieuwkoop and Teylingen-Oost. It is now preparing for rollout. It is expected that all registered households will have their fibre optic connection by the summer of 2019.

Glasvezel buitenaf was not available for comment. Before 9 July, when the registration deadline expired, the company announced that it would roll out a fibre network in the region. The project is called Groene Hart midden and includes Woerden, Oudewater and the outlying areas of Stichtse Vecht and IJsselstein.
