National Amsterdam-Noord will receive fiber optic fiber




GlasDraad is to install fiber optic cables in the Amsterdam Noord area in the municipality of Amsterdam. Forty percent of households have registered and the threshold has been reached one month before the deadline. The construction starts in June.

It is expected that the fiber optic network will be delivered by the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020. Fourteen providers will offer their services on the fiber optic network. Households and companies from the area can still register until 18 March. According to the initiators, attendees are installed in all corners of the area.

According to the ‘internet’ working group of the Central Council of Dredges, which initiated the fiber project two years ago, fiber optics is also being installed in the village centers where Ziggo coaxes. The working group states that this is unique, because fiber-optic projects in areas where coaxing is usually avoided.

Initially, the working group itself tried to set up a fiber campaign for the ‘white addresses’ in the outlying area, with financial guarantee from the province, but that did not prove fruitful. Subsequently, a second project was started in collaboration with the municipality of Amsterdam, in which four glass fiber companies were contacted. Two of them came with a concrete offer.

In October 2018 the working group made the choice to work with GlasDraad. On 21 January, a campaign was launched to get the required registration of forty percent of households. That percentage was achieved in a month. The area Landelijk Noord has about 2200 inhabitants.
