Market Expansion

Kabeltex's fiber networks cover approximately 18,000 homes, which will complement KPN's ongoing fiber expansion plans. This acquisition aligns with KPN's goal to achieve approximately 80 percent fiber coverage across the Netherlands, in collaboration with Glaspoort, by the end of 2026.

KPN and Kabeltex signed an agreement on November 30, 2023, and on December 4, 2023, KPN announced the completion of the deal. Following the acquisition, KPN will integrate Kabeltex's fiber networks into its existing portfolio of wholesale services for fiber.
