        Very good application. Has my vote.

        Applications looks good! However, Ziggo does not provide 500 megabits per second up down internet in the NL I believe, can you elaborate on this?

        Ziggo has contracts for 75, 300 or 600 mbits and for some parts of the Netherlands 1000 mbits.

        Good application, you have my vote.

        Thanks, I hope the upload speed will not become a problem (Ziggo does not provide glass fiber to your house, the last part of the line is coax, as far as I know)

        In addition, based on the info on the page below the maximum upload speed with a Ziggo contract is 50 Mbit/s.
