Ziggo, UPC complete network harmonisation

Friday 20 March 2015 | 10:44 CET | News
Dutch cable operators Ziggo and UPC have completed the integration of their networks as planned on 19 March. A Ziggo spokesman said the process went like a "military operation", progressing the best that could be expected. There were no major technical problems during the process, nor any significant increase in customer queries. The next step in the merger will be to link the operators' Wi-Fi networks. This is expected to take less time than the integration of fixed networks. In April, they will align their channel line-ups and UPC is expected to start using the Ziggo brand name.
