Deutsche Telekom JV Glasfaser Nordwest at risk after court appeal by rivals

Thursday 23 September 2021 | 13:03 CET | News
The Higher Regional Court in Duesseldorf has decided to overturn the approval of the Federal Cartel Office for Glasfaser Nordwest, the joint venture formed by Deutsche Telekom and Ewe Tel to deploy fibre networks in the north of the country, Heise Online report. The court found that the regulator's reasons for approving the JV were "unsustainable". It is almost certain that the case will now go to the Federal Court on appeal, the report said. If the ruling becomes effective, the Cartel Office would have five months to make a new decision.
