A smart move by KPN.
- A truly future-proof network.
- Who needs two (or more) FTTH connections?
- Leap ahead of the cash-strapped cable industry (mainly UPC and Ziggo).
- Possibility for separation, in order to maximize the value and maybe even attract state funding for the passive network part.
- Hoovering up even more (munifiber) would effectively mean re-monopolization of the Dutch market. Another argument in favor of separation.
