KPN to start deploying XGS-PON this month in fibre network

Wednesday 1 September 2021 | 12:03 CET | News
KPN has announced it will start rolling out XGS-PON in its fibre network from this month. XGS stands for ten (X), gigabit (G) and symmetric (S). It makes higher speeds possible than with the currently used GPON technology. KPN launched XGS-PON in the Gelderse Scherpenzeel in July, and Hengelo in Gelderland after that. The operator said XGS-PON will become the standard for the new fibre networks it installs.
