Run from 9 January to 10 February 2012

 

The draft BEREC Report on impact of fixed-mobile substitution (FMS) in market definition was discussed and agreed at the BEREC Board of Regulators meeting in Bucharest on 8 December 2011.

The main objectives of the draft Report are to:

  1. present generic information of the current situation in the EU Member States regarding FMS;

  2. provide guidance on the information that may be used by NRAs to analyse the possible integration of fixed and mobile services in the same market; and
  3. present a generic analysis on the potential impact of FMS on traditional fixed markets failures.

In accordance with the 2011 BEREC Work Programme, the aforementioned draft was published for public consultation, which was run in the period 9 January – 10 February 2012.
