Fibre


Comments

Bit of Hypocrite from KPN, first they buy Reggefiber to turn the fiber-optic roll-around, then they still don't dock in the outlying areas because this is less financially attractive. Then there is finally an investor who is going to lay out Cores, but certainly also the less financially interesting outlying areas, and then KPN suddenly comes up while KPN has not even made an inquiry in the municipality of Oss. A very dubious method to say the least. I would say Municipality of Oss, E fiber has invested a lot of time and money in design and business case Oss, and KPN has done absolutely nothing (not for 15 years) in investment in rural areas and still not, so KPN exit. Ps I personally offered Reggefiber (KPN at the time) about 3 years ago to set up a residents' initiative for fiber-optic roll-out, and I immediately had the answer Oss is not interesting enough.
