Dutch Internet Providers: what you need to know!

What you need to know about Dutch Internet

Dutch internet speeds are among the fastest in Europe. Nearly 98% of all Dutch households have a broadband connection at home. The average speed of internet connections in the Netherlands is around 80 Mbps. But there is much more to learn about Dutch internet providers. In this article, we tell you all you need to know about internet in the Netherlands!


Different Dutch Internet Providers

There are multiple internet providers in the Netherlands. The number of different techniques (ADSL/VDSL, fiber, and cable) and price plans mean speeds and prices vary widely among internet service providers. To make things even more complicating, not all services are available at every location. This means that finding a good internet provider can be quite confusing, particularly for expats and other temporary residents from abroad since all information online is in Dutch. 

The two biggest providers in the Netherlands are Ziggo and KPN, but other (a bit smaller) providers like Tele2 and Telfort can also provide internet connections, often at good prices. PartnerPete can help you find the internet provider that best matches your wishes, free of charge. We will make sure you get the best deals and offer flexible contracts where possible. 


Easy to switch providers

Many expats find that their utilities such as gas, water, and electricity as well as telecom connections have been arranged as part of their accommodation, but if you are unhappy with the quality, speed or price of your internet connection or other services, switching to another provider is possible. Make sure you plan this switch on time, as some providers might only switch at the end of the month or even at the end of your contract.

PartnerPete offers a free switch service for expats, as some providers don’t offer English customer service. PartnerPete can help you choose the right internet provider and help you switch whenever this is needed.


Quick and easy at no extra costs

PartnerPete has established contacts with companies such as Telfort, KPN, and Ziggo. This means you can be up and running with your new provider in no time. Some of our internet providers offer flexible contracts for a 1, 3 or 6-month period. There are no additional charges on top of the internet packages you choose, and you always get the best deals!
