VodafoneZiggo is launching its gigabit cable broadband internet service tomorrow (15 October 2019), initially in Utrecht, Vleuten, De Meern and Nieuwegein. The new DOCSIS 3.1-based service will be expanded to Hilversum next month and will be rolled out across more cities and regions throughout 2020 to reach two-thirds of the cableco’s customers. Cities earmarked for the 1Gbps/50Mbps (down/upload) deployment in the short-term include Amsterdam, Apeldoorn, Arnhem, Eindhoven, Groningen, Nijmegen, Rotterdam, Tilburg and Wageningen. The move follows a pilot in the Utrecht neighbourhood of Oog in Al. VodafoneZiggo’s existing DOCIS 3.0 cable broadband services offer download speeds of up to 500Mbps for consumers and 600Mbps for businesses.
A residential Ziggo Giga bundle with premium TV package (including Movies & Series) and fixed line calling costs EUR99.50 (USD109.80) per month.
