Ziggo is one of the leading communication and entertainment service providers for consumers and businesses in the Netherlands. Ziggo provides 9.7 million services to its customers with nearly 4 million television, over 3 million internet and 2.5 million fixed and mobile telephone services subscribers.
From earth to moon
The Ziggo network comprises 410,000 kilometres of coaxial cable and 38,500 kilometres of optical fibre cable. For comparison: the distance between the earth and the moon is 400,00 kilometres. In addition, Ziggo has over 2 million Wi-Fi spots across the Netherlands (figures as of 30 June 2017). These are spots where customers can find a wireless internet connection, when they are away from their own modem. Small and large businesses alike use products like data communication, (mobile) telephony, television services and electronic payment options.
The best entertainment, anytime and anyplace
In the seventies we had to make do with a few public TV channels, but nowadays the Ziggo cables bring hundreds of entertainment channels into customers' homes. As a result, the way in which we watch TV has completely changed these last few years. Since 2007, high definition provides us with a razor sharp image. Interactive TV conquers the Netherlands: it used to be impolite if visitors rang at your door during the 8 o'clock news. Interrupting an important broadcast was not done. Television dictating the course of the evening dates back to times long gone. With Replay TV you can go back in time or watch your entire favourite series. On demand TV enables people en masse to watch series and films uninterrupted by commercials. The new generation television services offer consumers extended freedom of choice and have become an integral part of the offer. In 2016, Ziggo became the exclusive provider of HBO services. Game of Thrones is one of the best known HBO series. Next to Movies and Series, Ziggo started its own sports channel: Ziggo Sport. The channel broadcasts the main sports events (live) each day. Ziggo is also a sponsor of Ajax. The brand name adorns the shirts of all the players.
In 2012, the Ziggo Dome opened its doors and in no time proved its strength as one of the best concert halls in the world. The Ziggo Dome houses the greatest artists and the best events worldwide. Unique in its kind, for its outdoor LED wall and indoor acoustics, to name but a few aspects. Large, but intimate at the same time.
