Freeler brings free Internet to Holland

Published on .

AMSTERDAM--Dutch financial services marketers Nationale Nederlanden, ING Bank and Postbank are providing free access to the Internet in the Netherlands through Freeler.

Set to launch on Oct. 1, Freeler is aimed at customers who cannot afford an Internet connection, according to Marque Joosten, general manager of Freeler.

Only 10% of Dutch households currently have a subscription with an Internet provider, says Mr. Joosten. Freeler expects to garner 300,000 clients this year and aims to become the leading Internet provider in Holland.

An advertising campaign to support the launch breaks through Direct Co., Amsterdam.
