Internet is available through the telephone or the television cable. In each case, there are a number of different suppliers, but all take around three weeks to send the equipment and set up the connection. Once you have called the supplier, they will send the modem to your address. If you would like an engineer to assist you, you should ask the supplier (do not forget to check how the engineer should be paid). Payment for Internet will always be by direct debit, so you must have a bank account first. In Nuenen and Tongelre, a unique fibre to the home network (100 Mbit/s full duplex internet, telephony, and radio/tv) has been installed by the cooperation Ons Net.
For Internet through the telephone network, you must have contracts with two companies:
- The supplier of the physical network (usually KPN). See the paragraph Telephony.
- The Internet service provider (ISP).
Set up a fixed telephone line. Then call the Internet service provider you wish to use. Phone numbers are available from the Yellow Pages or through the Internet. Have your address, date of birth, phone number, and bank account details ready. For a list of Internet providers check the website www.justlanded.com.
For internet through the cable, you must have a contract with the cable supplier as they also act as the internet service provider. See the paragraph Cable TV.
