Reggefiber takes majority in Amsterdam FttH net

The Reggefiber joint venture with the Dutch incumbent KPN is to raise its 33% stake in the Amsterdam FttH network Glasvezelnet Amsterdam (GNA) to 70%. At the same time, the city and housing corporations will lower their combined stakes to 30%.

This summer, the Reggefiber will start to connect a further 100,000 homes in the capital. GNA has already rolled out to around 43,000 homes.

The structure of the FttH network will be open, with a number of different service providers. KPN will also be one of the providers on the new net. GNA will compete both with the existing KPN copper network and the cable operator UPC.

After the deployment of the 100,000 connections, GNA will evaluate if the roll-out across the city will continue.
