Friday 3 November 2017 | 09:02 CET | News
Data bundles are getting bigger in the Netherlands. Over a third (35%) of postpaid mobile customers have a plan with over 2 GB a month, up from a quarter a year ago. Customers of T-Mobile and Tele2 especially use large data plans; 10 percent are on over 10 GB a month, the equivalent of an unlimited plan at the two providers. Telfort customers have on average the smallest data bundles; 26 percent don't even have a data subscription, according to Telecompaper's Postpaid Mobile Insights report for Q3.
