INTUG Participates in WIK-Consult Study

INTUG has been bringing the voice of the business user to a study by WIK-Consult, in conjunction with IDATE and Deloitte. The study, titled "Regulatory, in particular access, regimes for network investment models in Europe", is being carried out on behalf of the DG Connect of the European Commission.

It will contribute evidence and analytical insights in support of the Commission’s ongoing Review of the Regulatory Framework for Electronic Communications, with a specific focus on the promotion of competition and investment in Next Generation Access networks, and the associated regulatory regime and institutional framework.

As part of the process, a workshop on “Access and Investment” will be held on 6 April, 2016 to discuss the study, to seek feedback from stakeholders on the interim findings of the study and to debate the most appropriate mechanisms to achieve dynamic competition and investment in fast broadband networks for the future.  The goal is to capture the future connectivity needs of European businesses, and INTUG will present its views on business users' communications needs for the coming decade.

The results of the study will provide input to the Commission’s evaluation of the current access provisions in the EU Framework for electronic communications as well as the Impact Assessment of potential options for legislative change in this field.
