UPC Nederland has said it will invest this year in upgrading the remaing ‘white spots’ in the network in the provinces of South Holland and Gelderland to make them fully interactive. Until now, the cabler could not offer full triple play in these parts of the network.
Ritchy Drost, CFO of UPC, said in a press release: “We want all our customers to have access to our modern network. The upgrading requires a substantial investment, but now we will be able to offer all our customers including those in the Betuwe and Achterhoek a future-proof network, without public financial assistance.”
People will be free to choose any package they want, “We will not introduce mandatory packaging as is often the case with the construction of fibre optic networks.”
The upgrading of the nets will also allow customers to get access to all interactive digital TV services including VOD. Until now, subscribers in these parts could only buy a limited number of digital TV channels.
