The Dutch corporate appeals court (CBb) has overturned regulator ACM's decision to lower fixed and mobile termination rates. The ACM earlier this month confirmed the cut in rates from 01 September, prompting court appeals from KPN, Vodafone and T-Mobile, Tele2 and a group including UPC, Ziggo, Verizon, Esprit and BT. The court imposed new tariff caps of 1.861 eurocents per minute for mobile and 0.302 cents per minute for fixed. These will apply as an interim measure, until it gives a final ruling on the case. The main issue to be examined is the use of the Pure Bulric or Bulric Plus
