Tele2 mulls shifting to T-Mobile – Netherlands

According to industry sources, Tele2 is mulling the option of leaving KPN for T-Mobile. Currently, Tele2 provides MVNO services by utilising the network infrastructure of KPN. The move would take 460,000 mobile customers off KPN’s subscriber total and put the figure onto T-Mobile’s.

KPN acquired Telfort in 2005 and consequently gained Tele2 as its customer. When contacted, KPN declined to comment on the development while Deutsche Telekom was not immediately available for comment.
