T-Mobile Netherlands loses appeal against KPN copper switch-off schedule

T-Mobile Netherlands has lost a court appeal against rival KPN’s planned copper network shutdown schedule, and says it will now argue its case to the regulator, the Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM), Telecompaper reports. In late September T-Mobile launched a court case in an attempt to postpone national PSTN operator KPN’s plans to switch off copper lines and migrate services to fibre-optics, arguing that it will not have adequate time to transfer its own customers. KPN aims to decommission copper network services at more than two million addresses in Q1 2023, a plan it announced in February 2020. T-Mobile, while in the process of rolling out its own fibre infrastructure, relies on wholesale access to KPN’s network for wide internet coverage, and the company has requested a two-year delay in the copper switch-off process.
