KPN, VodafoneZiggo joint dominance leads to open cable, new budget brand from VZ and likely tariff regulation

Monday 1 October 2018 | 15:47 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
The Dutch telecom sector may be set for radical changes after the ACM's latest decision on regulation of the fixed broadband market. The decision could also influence other markets with a strong cable presence, such as Germany and Poland. However, the arrival of the first resellers taking advantage of open cable networks could take years, and VodafoneZiggo is likely to fight back the same as KPN with a low-cost brand. The threat of a structural margin squeeze is real and presents a serious obstacle to potential challengers.
