Telecommunications market: EU new report

Last week the European Commission published a new report on the telecommunications market and regulation in the EU.

The report covers a variety of regulatory issues: market regulation, broadband plans and financing, national regulatory authorities, authorisation, spectrum management, rights of way and access to passive infrastructure, access and interconnection, consumer issues, universal service and net neutrality. These issues are described in the context of market developments, competitiveness and digital agenda targets. The report covers the period from January 2012 till December 2013.

Vice-President of the European Commission @NeelieKroesEU said: “We are clearly still a long way from a real single market. We need to cut red tape and we need more consistent regulatory action at both national and EU levels to build up that single market. A quick implementation of the Broadband Cost Reduction Directive will contribute to this objective but there is more to do.”
