ACM delays fixed market decisions pending EC ruling on Ziggo

Wednesday 3 September 2014 | 11:13 CET | News
Dutch regulator ACM confirmed it's waiting to conduct its latest analysis of the fixed market until after a regulatory decision on the proposed merger of cable operators Ziggo and UPC. A decision on KPN's planned acquisition of a bigger stake in Reggefiber is expected around the same time, or shortly after the market decisions are published, a spokesman for the ACM told Telecompaper. While the competition and regulatory processes are separate, the ACM wants to ensure its market analysis is not immediately outdated. KPN and Reggefiber are cooperating with the delay.
