Tele2 NL begins marketing commercial FTTH plans ahead of November launch

28 Aug 2012

Dutch telco Tele2 NL has started offering customers in the cities of Leeuwaarden, Enschede, Hoofddorp and Almere the option to sign up for fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services, ahead of switching on such connections later this year. According to Telecompaper, the operator is initially focusing on the introduction of FTTH connectivity in the four aforementioned cities in November 2012, although residents in other municipalities are also able to confirm their interest in fibre-based services, although activation dates for other areas have yet to be confirmed. It is understood that Tele2 NL will offer a quad-play package including the fibre broadband option costing EUR42.50 (USD53.2) per month, with downlink speeds available on the basic package set at 40Mbps; the plan will also include fixed voice, pay TV and mobile voice services.
