Dutch provider KPN is looking to push Windows Phone in the Netherlands, according to a report over at NU.nl. Providing Windows Phone with a 'substantial share', the provider is set to take full advantage of business opportunities it sees with the platform.

John van Vianen, CEO of KPN Business Market, had the following to comment on the company's decision:

"Our confidence in Windows Phone is growing by the day and the need for a third ecosystem that not only provides our customers more choice, but also provides our company more options, is evident."

Over nine hundred employees from the marketing and sales department at KPN will receive either the Lumia 920 or Lumia 820, two new Windows Phone 8 handsets from Nokia. This will provide employees with an insight into what Windows Phone is all about, should they have not previously used Windows Phone 7.x.
