The Dutch telecom market has one of the most advanced broadband sectors in the world, with effective cross-platform competition between DSL and HFC networks further stimulated by numerous fibre deployments. There is also strong competition in the mobile sector, a factor which has obliged Deutsche Telekom to consider selling its T-Mobile Netherlands unit. A progressive digital TV platform is facing increasing pressure from a range of videostreaming services recently launched by OTT players, including Netflix. Telcos have responded with their own services in a bid to arrest customer cord cutting in preference for on-line video services.

The cable sector is dominated by UPC Netherlands and Ziggo, both owned by Liberty Global and which since March 2015 have been merged within Ziggo Group. The two companies nevertheless operate separate networks and provide separate services to customers within their respective footprints. These two players control more than 90% of the cable TV and cable broadband market, though they face competition from KPN's Digitenne service and from the emerging videostreaming offers.

In a significant market consolidation move, Liberty Global and Vodafone Netherlands agreed to form a 50:50 joint venture, capitalising on the former's broadband and the latter's LTE infrastructures.

This report introduces the key aspects of the Dutch telecom market. It provides comprehensive updated data on fixed network services, profiles the major operators and overviews the key regulatory issues including interconnection, local loop unbundling, number portability, carrier preselection, and the provisions for competitor access to cable and fibre infrastructure.
