ACM orders VodafoneZiggo to publish complete reference offer or pay up to EUR1m

25 Mar 2019

Dutch telecoms regulator ACM has ruled that cableco VodafoneZiggo’s wholesale broadband access reference offer does not meet the obligations imposed in its Wholesale Fixed Access market analysis. Consequently, VodafoneZiggo must publish a complete reference offer (with detailed pricing and terms for internet, TV and telephony access) by 31 March 2019 or pay fines of EUR100,000 (USD113,000) per day, up to a maximum EUR1 million. The decision followed a request from T-Mobile Netherlands to take action against VodafoneZiggo for breach of the obligation to publish a complete reference offer on 1 January 2019.
