KPN, banks plan NFC pilot
work with leading local banks ABN Amro, ING and Rabobank on a pilot of NFC mobile payments starting this summer in the city of Leiden. The pilot, which will also involve the city’s municipality and MasterCard, will use 1,000 KPN subscribers who also hold an account with one of the three banks. The three banks have established a new group called Mobile Payment Netherlands for the pilot which will run until the end of 2013. The banks will then decide how they wish to proceed with NFC on an individual basis.
