REGULATION://IP networks in the Netherlands and Germany

OPTA has published a time schedule, as a follow-up to its Position Paper on KPN's All IP network:
  • Conversations with all market participants: January 2007, follow-ups in February/March 2007.
  • Market research from Analysys et al: still on-going.
  • Decision-making (or drafts): 07Q2.

Uncertainty persists. While KPN keeps working on its All-IP network, altnets are on the sidelines. KPN plans to launch VDSL service May 1.

Related news: in Germany the regulator just opened a consultation on IP-interconnection. It closes February 26, 2007.
