VodafoneZiggo has published its reference offer Wholesale Fixed Access, reports Telecompaper.
VodafoneZiggo chose not to publish a press release at this time. In an explanation to Telecompaper, the company confirmed that potential partners have been informed.
The publication is in accordance with the obligation that the Dutch Consumer & Market Authority (ACM) imposed on 27 September 2018. This may lead in time to a new category of competitors on the Dutch market that are able to make use of this wholesale offer using third party access. Rates have not yet been set and will follow in January.
At this moment it is not yet possible to say whether and when wholesale partners can launch commercially. In the past, Tele2 and YouCa have expressed interest inhaling use of open cable regulation.
The offer is the result of the market analysis of the ACM for the coming years, in which it concluded that KPN and VodafoneZiggo have joint dominance. This resulted in the WFA regulation of 27 September.
