Outdoor areas Oudewater will be equipped with glass fiber connections




Fiber-optic provider GlasDraad has announced that the company will connect all houses in the outlying area of ​​Oudewater to optical fiber. Currently, only a dsl connection is available in many cases.

GlasDraad has shared the plans for the expansion on its website . The company works together with coax and fiber optic Rekam for the expansion, which allows all users who now purchase cable internet from Rekam to switch to fiber optic free of charge.

For the time being, the expansions are limited to the outlying area of ​​Oudewater. Pieter van Grunsven, a partner of the Society for Broadband in the Netherlands, confirms to Tweakers that the village itself is not included in the expansions. In Oudewater a number of addresses are already connected to fiber. Plans for expansion within Oudewater are currently not yet available, but Van Grunsven does not exclude that these will arise later on.

It concerns about 500 addresses, of which about 300 have a coax connection and 200 are currently required to do just dsl. The construction starts after the summer. GlasDraad is also working on other glass fiber projects in the Groene Hart, such as north of Alphen aan den Rijn .
