Dutch open fibre broadband network provider E-Fiber has connected a total of 100,000 addresses (homes passed) to its network throughout the Netherlands, with work in progress to reach a further 100,000 premises, reports Telecompaper. E-Fiber set a target of 50,000 additional homes passed this year, and is planning to increase the pace of rollout in 2021, with a goal of firmly establishing itself as the country’s third largest fibre access network owner.
E-Fiber’s website says that it is aiming to pass 500,000 addresses with gigabit fibre-optics in five years. The network is deployed on an open fibre basis: E-Fiber installs and manages the infrastructure while end users can choose from multiple retail service providers for broadband internet, TV and telephony. Currently the list of service providers includes: Stipte, Fiber Nederland, MultiFiber, Onvi, SNLR, Glasnet, Tweak, TriNed and newcomer Freedom Internet.
