Dutch cable operator Kabelnoord announced that it's upgraded 13,000 households with coax connections to fibre, in line with its schedule. The first phase of the migration to fibre is expected to be completed this summer, providing 16,740 sites with fibre. By 2020, the operator aims to have 28,590 homes on fibre, or around 2,000 more than its current total cable connections. Kabelnoord has an around 84 percent market share on its network (fibre and coax). It counts 22,000 paid subscribers and around 26,000 homes passed. The company first started the migration to fibre in 2014.
