In recent years several national regulatory authorities have imposed access to (active) layer 2 (Ethernet) wholesale access products (L2 WAP) as a remedy on the wholesale local access market and/or the wholesale broadband access market. To get a deeper insight into these products and to foster the exchange of experiences and to contribute to the harmonisation of regulatory instruments used in the EU, during the last two years BEREC has been analysing L2 WAP in place.
As part of this exercise from 8 June to 10 July 2015 BEREC organised a public consultation on the draft BEREC Report “Common Characteristics of L2 WAP in the EU”.
The current Report presents the outcome of the afore-mentioned public consultation and information how the comments provided by the stakeholders have been taken into account in the final version of the BEREC Report on Common Characteristics of L2 WAP in the EU.
