Ziggo starts selling smartphones, promises 'fair deal'

Thursday 1 December 2016 | 15:53 CET | News
Dutch cable operator Ziggo has started selling phones with its mobile plans. Ziggo said it offers a "fair deal" for its phones, which are available for a single payment or in 12 or 24 monthly installments with no interest. The offering comes as Dutch mobile operators are under pressure to increase transparency about handset costs, which are now considered a form of consumer credit when bundled with service packages. Ziggo said the payment for the phone will be separate from the subscription plan, and customers can pay off the remaining cost of the phone at any point during the contract.
