UTRECHT, Netherlands -- UPC and Ziggo have participated through a joint venture in the Dutch multiband spectrum licenses auction for mobile services. The companies have not acquired a new spectrum license during this auction. UPC and Ziggo considered the price too high given the additional revenues they expected to get from owning a license.
Both companies have experience in offering mobile services and are planning to expand their mobile offering in the coming years using the already acquired 2.6 GHz spectrum in 2010, via Wifi and through the existing MVNO agreements.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
