9 May 2018

Dutch telco KPN has disclosed that its new VDSL2-Vplus fixed broadband connections supporting 200Mbps/30Mbps (download/upload) speeds over copper lines will be available at more than 620,000 addresses in the Netherlands for wholesale customers from 24 May 2018, with further expansion planned through the rest of the year. The announcement on KPN Wholesale’s website confirmed the availability of Vplus for ISPs via its newly amended Wholesale Broadband Access (WBA) and Virtual Unbundled Local Access (VULA) offers. Initially, KPN’s Vplus service is restricted to modems with Broadcom chipsets, although in the future other modems will be permitted. Last year the operator completed Vplus user trials whilst revealing that it would also roll out speeds of ‘up to 400Mbps’ using Bonded Vplus.
