BEREC views on the review of the Telecoms Framework in Europe

20 May 2016

The BEREC Chair 2016 Mr. Wilhelm Eschweiler recently participated in the Internet and Cable Expo (INTX), which took place on 17 May 2016 in Boston (USA) where he expressed some views on the review of the regulatory framework for electronic communications in Europe from the perspective of BEREC.

During his presentation the BEREC Chair pointed out that more than thirteen years after its inception the regulatory framework needs to be adjusted to current market dynamics, developments and changing consumer needs. With a forward looking approach the framework needs to be flexible enough to cope with a fast changing digital ecosystem. He underlined that the review process provides a good opportunity to “re-fresh” the regulatory framework while preserving what is at the root of its success – its underlying principles.
