    Today, VodafoneZiggo signs the contract GT Fixed Communications with the Association of Netherlands Municipalities (VNG). As of 2018 the new contract will provide  approximately 200 municipalities with fixed data, fixed voice and internet. The contract will be valid for a period of 5 to 11 years maximum.

    John van Vianen, Executive Director Business market at VodafoneZiggo: "We are so proud to be chosen as the party to provide these services, with which we provide Dutch municipalities with a 'next generation network'. This agreement also demonstrates the strategic value of the joint venture, since it leverages the strengths of Vodafone as well as Ziggo."

    It is not the first big contract for the company this year. Both Vodafone and Ziggo already won several contracts like the provision of mobile communication services (IWR2017 Mobile Communication services) and service numbers (IWR2017 Inbound) in the IWR2017 programme of the central government.
