UPC to adopt Ziggo name from April

Tuesday 17 February 2015 | 09:52 CET | News
UPC Netherlands will adopt the name of its merger partner Ziggo in April. Mike Fries, CEO of the cable operator's parent company Liberty Global, announced the plans in a presentation on the company's quarterly results. The name change will be followed by a harmonisation of the two operators' service packages, including a roll-out of Liberty's connected Horizon box in Ziggo's footprint. UPC and Ziggo started integrating their networks earlier this year and already announced a number of changes in their service portfolios from April.
