Getting connected: Comparing Dutch internet, phone and television providers
You just landed in the Netherlands and there are many things you have to take care of. One of those things is getting an internet and phone connection as they are part of our “basic needs” these days. Luckily there are many Dutch internetproviders to choose from.
What exactly do you need?
Internet – but how fast you need it?
Telephone – unlimited calls or pay per minute?
TV – Still want to watch TV channels from home?
Moreover the list of providers you can choose from largely depends on your home address. Prices and options between providers also tend to vary widely so you might need a little help…
What our broadband internet comparison does
For this reason we compare all Dutch providers of (high speed) ADSL, cable and fiberglass broadband internet. When you found the right provider you can use our service to order the plan you want and we will make sure that you get connected – at no costs! Below we describe what we compare – besides prices and deals we compare many more – and how you can use our broadband internet comparison.
When you are looking for the best internet connection or the cheapest plan you can use aanbiedercheck.com (aanbieder is the Dutch word for provider) to compare internet speeds and prices of all large providers. But maybe you would also like to watch TV channels that are not part of the standard channel plan, of course in high quality, and watch missed tv programmes on demand. Than you would be better of choosing a combined “Internet and TV” plan or “Alles in 1” (Dutch for Everything in one) combining internet, television and telephone. Comparing internet providers consists of more than comparing internet only. At Aanbiedercheck.nl you can compare all internet providers and their supplementary products like tv and telephone for your postal address.
The best thing, our comparison tool is completely free to use and independent from the providers.
How our broadband internet comparison works
In the box below you’ll find our postal code check; please fill out your postal code and house number and we will check which providers are available at your address. After this you are directed to our comparison overview page where we present you all available plans from which you can choose the cheapest, best or most suitable plan. After that you can order that particular plan and we will make sure that you get connected as soon as possible, usually within two weeks. When you have done the postal code check we present you an overview page with available plans.
On the leftside of this page you find our searchfilters; based on the specifications of the available plans you can sort out those plans most interesting to you. You could, for example, choose for a free “doe het zelf” (do it yourself) installation or installation by a technician.
When you have found the right plan you can click through to the detailpage for that specific plan and finish your order by clicking the “bestellen” (order) button. In the ordering process you can choose which TV theme channels you would like to receive ; for example Fox Eredivisie (Dutch soccer league) or channels from your home country. From now the ordering process is almost finished, you have to fill out your details and you are done, but for the sake of completeness we have listed all the steps you need to go through. Questions? Just give us a call; our colleagues at the client center speak English, German, French and of course Dutch.
Step 1: Check your current plan:
Check the term of notice of your current contract (this is the date before you have to cancel) in order to prevent double costs. If you don’t have any broadband internet plan yet you can skip this step.
Step 2: Order your new plan:
Order the plan of your choice (Make sure that it is available at your home address)
Step 3: Receive confirmation of your new provider:
A few days after you have ordered your new plan you will get a letter with all the information about your new plan and new provider. Thinking about canceling it? You can cancel your new plan within 14 working days after you made your order.
Step 4: Now cancel your current / old plan:
You can now safely cancel your old plan. When you subscribe to a plan with one of the following providers: KPN, Ziggo, UPC, Telfort, Tele2, Online en XS4all you don’t have to do anything; our free switching service will make sure your old plan is being terminated and will connect you to your new provider. Of course when you don’t have a plan yet there is nothing to worry about!
Step 5: Installation & Set-up:
Before you can make use of your new Dutch broadband connection you will receive a set-up installation kit with an user manual. When you choose for a technician to install your high speed internet you will receive a call from your new provider to make an installation appointment.
