The Dutch requirement for analogue cable resale has been scrapped. The relevant parts of the Media and Telecommunications Law were dropped from 11 December. The two amendments were suspended already in January following a court order. The clauses were found to be in violation of the EU requirement that only an independent regulator, and not the government or parliament, can impose such requirements.
