KPN upgrades DTT service in Brabant, Zeeland

Friday 15 March 2019 | 10:52 CET | News

KPN has upgraded its Digitenne service in the provinces of North Brabant and Zeeland, switching the transmitters from DVB-T to the DVB-T2 standard. The upgrade provides for more efficient use of spectrum and the introduction of HD signals. All subscribers need to get new receivers to access the service. 

The Dutch operator started the migration last September, working in a phased manner with contractor VolkerWessels. Limburg province will transition to the new standard on 09 April, followed by the last provinces North Holland, Utrecht and South Holland on 9 July. 

KPN renewed its DTT licence in 2016 and as part of the deal needs to vacate the 700 MHz band for mobile services. The frequencies will be released for mobile from 2020, pending completion of an auction of the licences.
