KPN completes pilot shutdown of copper network in 6 areas

Thursday 6 May 2021 | 18:34 CET | News
Most of KPN's still active copper connections in Amsterdam IJburg, Bennekom, Bergeijk, Eersel, Eibergen and Zwolle Stadshagen were turned off on 1 April. This was done as part of the 'KoperUit' pilot, in which KPN is decommissioning the copper network in places where fibre is already available. The pilot was initially set to end on 1 April 2020 but was extended in 2019. It has now been completed.
