Further investigation needed into planned acquisition of Reggefiber by KPN

Further investigation needed into planned acquisition of Reggefiber by KPN

The Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) will launch a more detailed investigation into the planned acquisition of Dutch fiber-optic company Reggefiber by Dutch telecom provider KPN. In 2008, ACM imposed conditions on Reggefiber for the management of its fiber-optic cable network. The planned acquisition would produce a shift in the balance of power in Reggefiber, thereby rendering the 2008 conditions inapplicable. This may lead to restrictions for other companies on the use of KPN’s fiber-optic cable network. That is why further investigation is needed to see whether new conditions ought to be imposed.
