KPN outlined its plans to invest in a converged fixed and mobile network at its Capital Markets Day in Rotterdam. The Dutch operator said 30 percent of premises on its fixed network can already access speeds of 1 Gbps or more, and the aim is to take this to 45 percent by the end of 2021, using a combination of fibre and Gfast. Over the same period, the mobile network will be prepared for the launch of 5G.
