Customers of these brands will be brought under the KPN flag. For customers of these brands nothing will change’, according to the provider. Both Telfort and XS4All offer triple pay packages including IPTV from KPN.
The change will be implemented in the course of 2019 and 2020.
“With the focus on the KPN brand, we will expand KPN’s services with the best elements of the individual brands’, said Jean-Pascal Van Overbeke, Head of KPN’s Consumer Market.
“These include the highest rated XS4ALL service, Telfort’s affordable value-added services and Yes Telecom’s personal service and expert business advice.”
XS4All is the third-oldest ISP in the Netherlands, after NLnet and SURFnet. XS4All was the second company to offer internet access to private individuals, since 1993. The provider was acquired by KPN in December 1998, but remained an independent subsidiary.
After the KPN announcement, former XS4All employee Kirsten Verdel has started a petition to keep the brand alive, which attracted over 8,000 signatures within a few hours.
