VodafoneZiggo says no need to regulate fixed network

Tuesday 27 February 2018 | 09:23 CET | News
"We will study the draft decision of ACM," VodafoneZiggo said in response to the news. "We think that the market for internet access is very competitive. That is why we see no reason for more regulation. We also fear that this will disrupt the huge network investments that are necessary to remain a digital leader in Europe." The operator highlighted the fact that the Netherlands, looking at the international scene, offers attractive packages for fixed services, and at competitive prices.
