Also true of course, we are really spoiled with the coverage here. But 5 networks with only something like 16 million people means that it is also a lot harder to get enough customers.
To me the really interesting countries are Sweden, Norway, etc. really big countries with relatively few people but with a really impressive coverage. In north Sweden you see only mountains and snow but your cell phone will still work. But now Iím getting somewhat off topicÖ.

I also heard lately that KPN is gonna cease the brand HI (his "official" MVNO), and all the customers will be under KPN.

Does somebody knows more about that?

How many brands/MVNOs does KPN own? In Germany it has E-Plus, but also uses BASE, simyo, and ay yildiz (these are their own brands, not considering the many MVNOs that use the E-Plus infrastructure). Seems to me that BASE and simyo are the closest things it has to cross-border branding.

Only in Dutch and it doesn't really say they will stop using Hi, it only says they want to focus on KPN and Telfort (which is almost the same, but not exactly....)

Wow, it seems KPN collects brands!
BTW I never understood the sense of "HI" offer, which has never been convenient...

Regarding the prepaid, i agree with you....all calls at 29 ct per minute is not a good choiche (before, i had a T-Mobile "after3" prepaid).

IMHO, hi make sense only for the postpaid

Not brands, but companies, actually. Almost all the brands they have (except for hi) used to be companies. And most of them are ISP's.
