Almost 35 years after its foundation, the Antenna Foundation was at a turning point. As of 1 January 2021 the hosting activities of Stichting Antenna are transferred to Hoasted B.V..
This change is partly due to continuing health problems of Michael Polman, one of the founders and driving force behind Stichting Antenna for many years. All employees of Stichting Antenna end this period with some pain in their hearts, but at the same time with peace of mind, as takeover partner Hoasted has earned its spurs as a reliable party for Internet services and hosting activities in recent years.
