Internet prices rise, profits don't

The Netherlands' four largest internet providers - Ziggo, KPN, T-Mobile and Delta - have announced or implemented significant price increases since the beginning of 2023. However, despite these price increases, there has been no profit increase at the providers, reported today.

According to experts, the ISPs' costs, such as energy and staff, have risen even faster, reducing their profits. Telecoms analyst Tim Poulus of Telecompaper points out that, for example, KPN is raising its prices by the same percentage as staff salary increases.

The Consumers' Association Consumentenbond has seen no signs of unreasonable price increases by internet providers. However, Babs van der Staak, spokesperson for the Consumers' Association, does suggest that customers should look critically at their subscriptions and possibly switch to another provider for better rates.
