Dutch broadband penetration is among the highest in the world, the result of government and municipal investment in broadband infrastructure together with a range of local initiatives. The country’s comprehensive DSL and cable networks have thus been supplemented with wide-scale fibre deployment: financial commitments from KPN/Reggefiber, BBned and municipalities have pushed the Netherlands to the forefront of fibre infrastructure in Europe.

KPN’s decision to deliver FttH nationally within the next few years will further consolidate this lead, helping to place the country as the regional benchmark against which other European operators and regulators will be assessed.

This report analyses fibre deployments in the Netherlands in 2011, including regulatory developments and operator strategies for coming years.

Key developments:

Smaller cablecos forgoing DOCSIS for FttH; Reggefiber secures additional €285 million loan to extend FttH network; Glashart Media provides open access to its FttH network; KPN looks to upgrade FttH to 1Gb/s; regulator market data to Q1 2011; operator data to June 2011.

Companies covered in this report include:

KPN, Glashart, Teleplaza, OONO.
