Europe's Most Wired Country

With the highest broadband penetration per capita in the world — 99% of all households—as well as one of the world’s fastest average broadband speeds, the Netherlands is one of Europe’s most-wired and cyber-secure countries. It also directly links continental Europe to North America, with most transatlantic sea cables going directly to the Netherlands.

Holland’s state-of-the-art, 100% digital, advanced fiber-optic network supports an innovative community of startups, data centers and multinational digital companies including Microsoft, Cisco, Tata, Infosys, Huawei, Oracle, Intel, IBM, Verizon and Google. Amsterdam, in particular, has become a digital hub in recent years thanks to the presence of AMS-IX: the world’s leading Internet exchange point.

Plus, Holland’s world-class resources and dynamic startup climate are drawing in an expanding array of providers and helping to steadily decrease tariffs and further improve cost competitiveness, making the Netherlands one of the best values in Europe.
