Study into the current and future technological access options to all fixed telecommunication infrastructures in the Netherlands

The Dutch regulatory authority ACM mandated WIK-Consult to analyse the network access technologies used in the dutch market in a time frame until 2025. There have been interviews with the most relevant operators in this regard.  

WIK considered FTTC technologies up to XG.fast, the coax-network technologies up to DOCSIS 3.1 full duplex and the point-to-point FTTH architecture and its capabilities regarding high bandwidth transmission and its principle capabilities to support physical unbundling, alternatively virtual unbundling. 

We estimated the possible impact on a hypothetical market entrance of a new fixed network operator and its profitability for all these access network infrastructures by cost models for the different architectures, using the established handover locations of the dutch market.

The study is available for download.
