Swiss authority set to ask Sunrise for remedies for approval of UPC takeover - report

Thursday 12 September 2019 | 16:33 CET | News
Swiss competition commission Weko is set to ask Sunrise to provide remedies in order to approve the takeover of UPC Switzerland, Handelszeitung reports citing sources. One possible remedy could force Sunrise to open the cable network of UPC Switzerland to third fixed parties and internet service providers such as Salt, Green.ch or Init7. Wholesale agreements are offered for example by Swisscom and energy suppliers to use their copper and fibre networks.
