Run from 9 January to 10 March 2012

The draft BEREC report on Co-investment and significant market power (SMP) in Next Generation Access Networks (NGA) (+annex 2 and annex 3) was discussed and agreed at the Board of Regulators on 9 December 2011 and was published for public consultation on 9 January 2012.

The main objectives of the draft document are to:

  1. list and describe the different possible co-investment schemes to roll out fibre access networks across Europe.

  2. suggest elements to be examined by NRAs in a co-investment scenario when conducting SMP analyses of markets 4 and 5.

  3. examine specific sets of conditions and criteria considered to be suitable indicators of effective competition.
