Greenet gets support in Dronten for wireless internet

Monday 22 May 2017 | 11:12 CET | News
The Dutch municipality of Dronten approved a loan to Greenet for placing a 40m antenna mast in order to provide wireless internet to outlying areas of the town. The company has been working for several years on delivering fixed wireless services to rural areas, and the new mast will deliver coverage over up to 15km. This should provide coverage for agricultural and recreational businesses in the east of Dronten, while the west side of the city should also have better coverage. The loan is part of the city's efforts to ensure all homes and businesses have fast broadband services.
