This is rather old news btw, the convernant was signed < 14 Aug.
The ISP's that signed are :
Alice, Het Net, InterNLnet, KPN, Luna NL, Concepts ICT, Online, Solcon,
Tele2, Telfort, UPC, Xenosite, XS4ALL en Ziggo
This is certainly not 98% of the NL marked as they claim. But who cares
its a nice initiative.
