KPN monopolises Dutch fibre market to NMA limits

Wednesday 17 October 2012 | 21:28 CET | Author: Kamiel Albrecht | Market Commentary
Dutch cartel office NMA has approved KPN's acquisition of four FTTH service providers owned by Dutch investor Reggeborgh. The four are Concepts ICT, XMS, Edutel and Kickxl. The approval sees KPN increase its share of the broadband market from 39 percent to almost 41 percent, putting its goal to have a 45 percent share by 2015 back in sight. The approval does not come as a total surprise as NMA had already approved the acquisition of FTTB service provider Lijbrandt, wholesale FTTH TV operator Glashart Media and wholesale FTTH operator Reggefiber Wholesale in April of this year.
