EC points to new analysis of Dutch cable market

Wednesday 13 May 2015 | 17:18 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
The European Commission has questioned Dutch regulator ACM's analysis of the fixed market. The ACM sent the draft decision to the EC in early April for comment, but the EC has come back with objections. In particular, Brussels is concerned about the competitive balance between KPN and the cable sector. It found the ACM did not explain well enough why cable was not included in the relevant wholesale market. If this market is not correctly defined, this has further consequences, with only KPN named a significant market power.
