The divestment of Vodafone Thuis was a commitment offered by Vodafone Group Plc and Liberty Global plc to the European Commission as a condition of clearance of the merger of Vodafone Netherlands and Ziggo in the Netherlands.

Vodafone Thuis has approximately 150,000 consumer fixed broadband customers.

The transaction is conditional on approval from the Dutch competition authority, the European Commission approving T-Mobile Netherlands Holding B.V. as a suitable purchaser of Vodafone Thuis and consultations with Works Councils. The transaction is expected to close in December 2016.
