NDIX director Jeroen van de Lagemaat said: "The FCA is an interesting initiative, inter alia in order to share our knowledge of Dutch and German networks with other fiber carriers. Connecting as a participant offers NDIX good opportunities."

Rick Fucht, FCA president, and Andrew van der Haar, director FCA, are pleased NDIX want to make its expertise available to the FCA: "It is very positive and encouraging that NDIX intends to support in this way. We consider it as a great complement to the expertise of the FCA. "
