Separation round-up

In March, the Dutch NRA (OPTA) declined to separate network and services at incumbent KPN. OPTA said it didn't have the power to do so. It added that cable competition, as well as open access to the KPN network (be it wholesale, LLU or bitstream) were sufficient to guarantee a competitive market.

However, Viviane Reding seems to be on collision course, aiming for a European effort at separating PTTs.

I suppose this issue will produce a lot of nois.

What has happened since?

Australia's alternatives operators (G9) have proposed the same and to join efforts with the incumbent to speed the investment in an NGN.
