Thursday 24 June 2021 | 09:44 CET | News
KPN is doubling the upload speed of its top fibre package to 1 Gbps. The change will be implemented for all existing customers from July 1. New customers and upgrades will also receive symmetric 1 Gbps speeds from then, from the current 1000/500. KPN's other fibre packages are already symmetrical, with 50, 100, 200 or 500 Mbps. The new upload speeds will be available to KPN's consumer, business and wholesale customers as soon as the network is upgraded.
