Event: 10 Years Mobile Competition

On Thursday September 10th 2009 we are organizing a reunion for Dutch mobile professionals to reminisce on 10 years of competition in the Dutch mobile market.

In 1999 competition flourished in the Dutch mobile market with the introduction of Telfort, Dutchtone and Ben next to the existing operators, incumbent KPN and Libertel. Mobile has jumped started from there and the impacts on consumer lives, retail, suppliers and related industries has been significant.
