This paper presents BEREC views on the Universal Service regime, as in the Commission’s proposals (proposal for a Directive establishing the European Electronic Communications Code 14 September 2016) and IMCO Opinion (adopted on 8th September 2017, which was incorporated within ITRE’s report, adopted last 2nd October). It refers to key aspects of both proposals and addresses issues like the scope of US, affordability measures or the need to maintain the flexibility for each Member State to define functional internet access according to the specificities of their national markets.
