KPN-Reggefiber acquire majority interest in Amsterdam FTTH network

5 Feb 2009

The Dutch fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) joint venture formed by KPN and Reggefiber is acquiring a majority stake in Glasvezelnet Amsterdam (GNA), a group which is developing a FTTH network in the capital. Reggefiber, which recently bundled its fibre activities in a joint venture with KPN, has agreed to increase its stake in GNA from 33% to 70% by buying shares from the city and housing corporations involved in the project. According to Telecompaper Reggefiber will take over management of network roll-out. GNA has already rolled out FTTH to around 43,000 homes in the neighbourhoods Osdrop and Zeeburg, and from summer 2009 will start connecting an additional 100,000 homes.
