Genexis enables sustainable fiber broadband with KPN

Genexis, part of Inteno Group, announces that it has started delivery of its new Gigabit fiber products based on recycled plastic to KPN, the leading fiber broadband operator in the Netherlands. The Genexis product provides Gigabit connectivity over fiber and is placed in the home of the consumer. Genexis provides products and solutions for Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) that enable future-proof broadband.

“At KPN, we aim to improve the eco-design of in-home equipment based on our circular ambition,” says Jeroen Cox, Senior Manager Energy & Environment of KPN. “We are pleased to innovate with Genexis and introduce a new Network Termination Unit that not only uses 25% less plastic vs the previous version, but also introduces the usage of recycled plastic.”

“KPN is a lighthouse customer for us,” says Gerlas van den Hoven, CEO of Genexis. “Together with KPN, we have succeeded to make big steps in terms of making broadband even greener. Our approach to fiber-to-the-home is about making it easy to connect people to Gigabit and more. Combining this mission with building a sustainable society helps us to make a difference, while still providing our customer with the best total cost of ownership.”
