Ziggo wants frequencies to offer mobile internet

2 Mar 2009

Dutch cable operator Zesko Holdings (Ziggo) is reportedly seeking frequencies to launch a high speed mobile internet service, De Telegraaf reports. Ziggo, which in the past has dabbled with WiMAX technology, hopes to secure a mobile internet licence which would also allow it to offer telephony services, the paper says. The government is planning to auction new licences this year and UPC Nederland and Tele2 are other candidates expected to join the auction. The government wants to auction a total of six frequencies – previously it was five – at the request of the Lower House, which decided to increase the number of concessions available.
