KPN launches FTTH €65-€110/month

As of last Friday KPN launched FTTH. On their website http://www.kpnglasvezel.nl there is some information. Initially there are only 5 locations where the service can be had.
  1. Almere
  2. Son en Breugel
  3. Uden
  4. Veghel
  5. Elburg.

The Bronze package has 30mbit/s down for €65 and 3 up, Silver 50/5 €80 and Gold 60/6mbit for €110 . All offer a triple play including unlimited national calls to fixed lines and a minimum of 50 tv-channels with a harddisk recorder. There is VoD available, but no mention of HD-TV. http://www.kpnglasvezel.nl/nederland/?id=20

I think the bandwidth is a bit disappointing especially upstream. But hey, that's life. Hopefully competition will cure that (except, noone is competing at the moment)


  1. Is it just me or do those prices seem really expensive?

  2. Depends... In Dollars it sounds expensive, but if you make price-parity comparisons, which are 1.1 dollar to 1 euro, then its about 70 dollars - 121 dollars.

  3. In my opinion, if you compare KPN 'zilver' with other Dutch FTTH providers, it's expensive.
    Eg. XMS Internet 50/50Mbit, Digital TV, unlimited calls. 69,90 euro.
    KPN Internet 50/5(!!!)Mbit, Digital TV, unlimited calls, 80 euro.
