London (CBS.MW) — Cable company United Pan-Europe communications (UPC), owned by Denver-based UnitedGlobalCom (ucoma), will not be forced to allow Dutch telecoms operator KPN (nl:00908) access to its cable network in the Netherlands.

The Dutch industry regulator Opta dismissed a lawsuit by KPN, ruling instead that negotiation options between the two companies had not been exhausted, the Wall Street Journal reports.

KPN wants to gain access to UPC's high-speed infrastructure to transmit digital television and radio. KPN shares were up 0.6 percent in Amsterdam morning trade.
