Competition Policy in the EU

This chapter provides a review of the telecommunications policy of the European Union. It discusses the motivations for the Commission's regulatory choices and provides some evidence on their performance. It finds that the outcome of the first regulatory period varied significantly between member states, reflecting the numerous implementation choices that were left at their consideration. The recent reform of the regulation addresses some of the past shortcomings, placing competition policy at the heart of the new regulatory framework. In so doing, the Commission intends to implement an evolving framework, in line with the convergence process, and a consistent application of rules across countries. Nevertheless, the new framework still poses some risks for technological neutrality.

Keywords:   regulation, market integration, broadband, convergence process, technological neutrality
