VodafoneZiggo vs. ACM: if the regulator wins, new action on wholesale cable rates needed

Thursday 18 July 2019 | 16:59 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary

A ruling from the court - the outcome of which is difficult to predict - is expected by 04 October. If the ACM wins and the regulation is upheld, a new analysis of the wholesale tariffs will be needed, as the current rates are not attractive enough for potential takers.
