KPN to test hybrid DSL-4G service for home broadband

Monday 30 January 2017 | 15:47 CET | News
Dutch operator KPN announced plans to test a combination of DSL and LTE to deliver faster home broadband in outlying areas. The KPN Experiabox will be combined with a LTE modem. The service will rely on the fixed network, but if capacity becomes limited, activate the 4G connection to boost bandwidth. The test will start in April in the town of Nijkerk, in the area Appel-Driedrop Huinen, with 200 customers.
