KPN to roll out bonded vectoring 200Mbps; expanding 100Mbps footprint

18 Nov 2014

The Netherland’s largest telco in terms of subscribers, KPN, is to start rolling out VDSL bonded vectoring for wholesale customers in 2015, according to Telecompaper. The pair-bonding service will increase maximum download speeds from 100Mbps to 200Mbps and is planned to become available in 50 areas in the Netherlands in 1Q15, whilst VDSL vectoring 100Mbps services will be expanded to all 2.25 million premises with VDSL in the Buitenring in 2Q-3Q15. The wholesale service for 100Mbps connections is to cost the same as current 80Mbps lines with the operator reported to already be upgrading its 660 fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) street cabinets. Dutch regulator ACM will set prices for the vectoring services. KPN also intends to deploy a 200Mbps symmetric service over its Reggefiber network in mid-January for EUR18 per month. TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database notes that KPN launched commercial VDSL2 vectoring services in October 2013.
