Vodafone Netherlands sues KPN over delay in fixed access

Thursday 10 December 2015 | 08:40 CET | News
Vodafone Netherlands is suing KPN for anti-competitive behaviour, saying the Dutch incumbent prevented Vodafone from entering the triple-play market for several years. Vodafone claims EUR 115 million in damages due to KPN obstructing its access to key network technology in 2011-2014 and hence slowing the launch of the 'Vodafone Thuis' (Vodafone at Home) offer. Vodafone filed its suit at the court in The Hague, claiming KPN abused its dominant market position, and was able to build up a significant customer base in the triple-play market in recent years while it kept rivals out of the market.
