VodafoneZiggo, the largest multiplay provider in Netherlands announced that it has started Docsis 3.1 tests in the city of Utrecht with 20 households and companies.

The Operator aims to roll out ‘network of the future’ with Gigabit speeds of more than 1Gbps from 2020.

With this investment in its mobile, fiber optic and coax networks, VodafoneZiggo is able to accommodate the explosive growth in bandwidth and speed in the coming years. 

VodafoneZiggo wants its mobile and fixed connections to be even closer to each other. Customers will then hardly notice that their devices switch between fixed, Wi-Fi or mobile internet. This requires a stable, smart and high-quality network with far more capacity and faster internet connections. For this network of the future, the company is developing various pilots and joint ventures on its fixed and mobile networks.

Eben Albertyn, Technical Director, VodafoneZiggo
Technological developments are going fast and offer countless new, smart possibilities that will enrich our lives. That requires a lot of our networks in terms of capacity, speed and reliability. And that is exactly what we show in this pilot in Utrecht where we increase the speed to as much as 1Gbps.
