Vodafone and Ziggo together beyond – Along a KPN competitor in all areas




It almost sounds like the tune of a superhero: the merger, it is a takeover? No, it’s a joint venture. The step of Liberty Global and Vodafone to merge their Dutch divisions is a major step for the Netherlands, but a small step for both corporations on a global scale.

To give an illustration: Vodafone pays in setting up the joint venture with Liberty Global, an amount of one billion euros. That seems a lot of money and said between you and me, simple Tweakers editors are also not on the bank account, but in comparison, when Vodafone sold its share in the joint venture Verizon Wireless in the US, previously received more than one hundred billion. And Verizon Wireless offers, as the name suggests, only mobile services.

probably great, but one thing still does not change the consequences for the Dutch market. The names Vodafone and Ziggo remain. The mobile services continue to monitor the Vodafone name, the name Ziggo adheres to the cable company.

We’re already trying to look ahead to the time to come. What will mean the arrival of this new joint venture for the fixed and mobile market?
