Competition regulation by the Danish telecoms authority in connection with local and regional fibre network operators

Question for written answer  E-004932/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Pernille Weiss (PPE)

On 20 December 2020 the Danish Business Authority (DBA), which is responsible for regulating competition in the telecoms sector in Denmark, designated 12 local and regional fibre network operators – all owned by a local or regional energy company – as having significant market power in a geographically defined submarket. They include nef Fiber, which has only around 4 200 fibre customers. The DBA draft decision of 2 July 2021 imposes very far-reaching access regulation on nef Fiber as regards local physical network access (raw fibre). The DBA delimits geographic submarkets for high-capacity broadband on the basis of energy companies’ electricity distribution areas, as a result of which regulation is targeted on fibre network operators owned by energy companies while other providers go unregulated.
