In recent months, KPN has seen the return of winter sports-related roaming traffic almost completely, after a year of absence. In the period December – March KPN recorded about 40% more data traffic compared to two years ago.

After a year of absence, the Dutch have again fully enjoyed winter sports in recent months. An analysis by KPN shows that Dutch winter sports enthusiasts make about as many calls from the Alps as they did two years ago. Data consumption did increase again (+40%), reasonably in line with the annual growth in data traffic. It is also clearly visible in mobile data traffic when the first Corona measures and restrictions will apply in March 2020, with a clear decline from winter sports locations. A similar effect can also be observed at the beginning of this year, but because many travel restrictions have been relaxed since mid-February, the entire month of February is normal in terms of traffic.

Austria is the most popular winter sports destination. It is also notable that the spring break for the North region fell in February and the Central and South went in March. Unlike two years ago when all regions had spring break in February. And it makes perfect sense, in 2021 there was little or no roaming traffic from the Alpine countries.

Since June 2017, calling, texting and using the internet has been the same everywhere in the European Union as in the Netherlands. Although Switzerland is not an EU country, KPN also applies roam-like-home there. In short; KPN customers can use their smartphones at all favorite winter sports destinations as they are used to in the Netherlands.
