The installation of fibre optics in the remote area started on 4 April 2017. VolkerWessels Telecom is the contractor responsible for laying the fibre optics. The contractor will inform the inhabitants of North Salland about the excavation work and the installation of the fibre optic connection at home.
In North Salland, this concerns households and businesses in the municipalities of Raalte, Olst-Wijhe and some connections from Zwolle and Dalfsen – some 3,200 households in total. After the fibre optic laying in North Salland, VolkerWessels Telecom will continue in South Salland.
A detailed schedule of the fibre optic laying was available on www.glasvezelbuitenaf.nl on 4 April 2017. The website also provides more information about the fibre optic laying process.
It’s not too late for residents who have not yet signed up for a fibre optic subscription. You can still register for your fibre optic connection via the service providers.
