Ziggo raises broadband speeds

Thursday 26 February 2015 | 12:01 CET | News
[Update with new information] Dutch cable operator Ziggo has started increasing broadband speeds for customers, the company confirmed following reports on the Tweakers forum. The maximum speed on the triple-play Plus plan increased to 120/12 Mbps from 90/9 Mbps, and the Extra triple-play plan rose to 200/20 Mbps from 180/8 Mbps. The Basic plan remains at 30/3 Mbps. Ziggo customers can reset their modems to take advantage of the faster speeds or wait a few weeks to have the faster speeds take effect automatically. Ziggo plans to make the speed increase official at a later date.
