Dutch regulator proposes wholesale cable access on VodafoneZiggo network

Tuesday 27 February 2018 | 08:44 CET | News
The Dutch Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) wants to regulate the cable network of VodafoneZiggo for the first time. In a new analysis of the fixed market, the regulator said it wants to assure providers of TV, internet and telephony services that do not have their own network that they will have sufficient access to the consumer market at reasonable rates. At the moment, only KPN's copper network is open to wholesale access.
