Telenet, Voo lose appeal against wholesale cable regulation

9 Sep 2019

Belgian cable operators Telenet and Voo have lost their appeal against the revised wholesale cable access regulation passed in June 2018. In a judgement issued on 4 September, the Market Court rejected their objections both on procedural and material grounds and ruled the regulator had not violated procedure when it judged the companies hold significant market power in the relevant markets. The cable access regulation adopted in 2018 requires Proximus, Telenet, Brutele and Nethys (the latter two operating under the Voo brand) to open their networks to competitors and apply fair tariffs for the services provided to rival operators.
