Ziggo to work with Alcatel-Lucent on Groningen Wi-Fi trial

Thursday 25 October 2012 | 10:10 CET | News
Dutch cable operator Ziggo is conducting its Wi-Fi trial in Groningen with Alcatel-Lucent. The trial is using Alcatel-Lucent's lightRadio Wi-Fi® technology to give multiple Ziggo subscribers simultaneous access to high-quality wireless internet, without impairing either the existing home broadband service quality or impacting the security of existing home Wi-Fi networks. Ziggo announced earlier that it was rolling out the trial to the entire province of Groningen.
