KPN is the leading telecommunications and IT service provider in The Netherlands, offering wireline and wireless telephony, internet and TV to consumers. KPN offers business customers complete telecommunications and IT solutions. KPN Corporate Market (previously known as Getronics) offers global IT services and is the Benelux market leader in the area of infrastructure and network related IT solutions.
The core objective of the new partnership is to give (SME) companies the opportunity to test innovative applications in the practice. The last two years Amsterdam Smart City together with and Liander, AIM and the City of Amsterdam have already been making this possible for various stakeholders with a strong focus on energy transition. The fact that KPN has now joined the partnership means that the focus will shift towards the use of broadband Internet connections.
KPN and partner Reggefiber make annual investments in the laying of fibre-optic connections in Amsterdam. KPN wishes to collaborate with other stakeholders in the development of services for its customers and for the city of Amsterdam. KPN thereby offers an open structure that will provide access to many companies. This strategy makes it possible to spread the risk and explore new markets.
