T-Mobile Netherlands to invest €700m in fibre optic networks

T-Mobile Netherlands has announced that it will spend at least €700 million on a new fibre optic network to make high-speed internet available to urban areas.

The telecoms business has said that over five years, one million households will have access to the fibre optic broadband.

The network, run by Open Dutch Fibre, will be an open-access model, which means other providers can use it.

Over the past eighteen months, T-Mobile has already announced the availability of fibre optic internet to over 130,000 households in The Hague, Eindhoven, and Rotterdam.

T-Mobile and Open Dutch Fibre have now signed an agreement that will result in a tenfold increase of the initial roll out.

“There is another very important aspect to mention,” said Søren Abildgaard, chief executive, T-Mobile Netherlands. “Together with Open Dutch Fibre we have sustainability high on our agenda.”

Abildgaard added: “That is why we have agreed that this new fibre network will also contribute to a climate-friendly society by minimizing power consumption and using renewable energy sources. "
