DELTA Fiber has acquired Glasvezel Zuidenveld and FiberFlevo / FiberNH, thereby increasing its reach to more than 1.3 million households. Fiberglass Zuidenveld is a residents' initiative which has installed a fiber optic network in the municipality of Coevorden. FiberFlevo / FiberNH has installed a fiber optic network in the Noordoostpolder and in the north of the province of North-Holland. Through these acquisitions, DELTA Fiber adds approximately 23,000 households to its service area and is now active in all provinces in the Netherlands.
"We are pleased that, with these acquisitions, we are taking the next step in realizing our ambition to reach 2 million households by 2025," says Michiel Admiraal, director of DELTA Fiber. "Both Glasvezel Zuidenveld and FiberFlevo / FiberNH are, just like us, particularly active in rural areas and villages. In addition, the networks have been rolled out to the fuse boxes of their households (homes connected). So these acquisitions fit our strategy perfectly: offering residents fast and accessible fiber optic services."
