Tele2 Netherlands expands VDSL footprint to 3.8 mln homes

Thursday 19 June 2014 | 10:28 CET | News
Tele2 Netherlands is expanding its VDSL footprint. The operator previously offered only unbundled access, but it has now decided to take KPN's wholesale service, giving it access to 3.8 million homes and businesses. Tele2 said the expansion is needed to address the increasing demand for bandwidth. Tele2 will offer VDSL at up to 40 Mbps, while KPN's network already supports 80 Mbps in some areas. Tele2 is also active on the Reggefiber FTTH network. It counts around 370,000 broadband customers in the Netherlands.
