In 2012 BEREC published the report “An assessment of IP interconnection in the context of Net Neutrality”,  which concluded that the Internet ecosystem had managed to adapt IP interconnection arrangements to reflect changes in technology, in the (relative) market power of players, and in demand patterns and in business models, all without a need for regulatory intervention.In November 2016 BEREC held the 3rd expert workshop in IP-interconnection in co-operation with the OECD  – bringing together members of academia, market experts and participants, as well as public authorities, including European NRAs, US and Mexican regulators (FCC and IFT respectively) as well as DG Competition. The insights gained at the workshop have informed the current project.Based on this background, BEREC published the Report on IP-Interconnection practices in the Context of Net Neutrality for public consultation on 7 June 2017 and the consultation closed on 5 July.
