The Netherlands has one of the highest broadband penetration rates in the world, the result of large-scale government and municipal investment in broadband infrastructure. The country has comprehensive DSL and cable networks, with operators having invested in technology upgrades to improve data speeds. KPN has launched vectoring VDSL and Vplus' technologies while VodafoneZiggo, created in December 2016, UPC Netherlands and Ziggo have upgraded their networks with DOCSIS3.0, and are looking to deploy DOCSIS3.1 in coming years. This upgrade will be capable of delivering data at more than 1Gb/s. The market share held by DSL, once the dominant platform, has fallen consistently for several years as customers migrate to faster cable and fibre-based networks. By early 2017 fibre accounted for more than 16% of all fixed-line broadband connections.

Although there are a number of smaller cable broadband providers, the sector is dominated by Ziggo Group (incorporating UPC and Ziggo) which controls 90% of the cable broadband market, and with it the cable TV market.
