KPN Put Under More Scrutiny by Dutch Regulator After Violations

Royal KPN NV, the biggest Dutch telephone company, was put under increased supervision by the country’s telecommunications regulator because of undisclosed violations.

“OPTA has taken action against this violation,” Cynthia Heijne, a spokeswoman for the regulator in The Hague, said by telephone today. KPN has appealed the ruling and the regulator may give further details in January.

“Because of the pending proceedings, OPTA can’t comment on the nature and size of the violations,” the regulator said today in a statement. KPN expects to make a statement later today, Marianne Zwart, a company spokeswoman, said by telephone.

OPTA put KPN under increased supervision in 2005 after the phone company gave illegal discounts to corporate customers, for which it was fined 17 million euros ($22 million). Dutch competition regulator NMa is separately investigating KPN and other telephone companies for possible antitrust violations.
