Regulatory Scorecard 2009
The ECTA Regulatory Scorecard 2009 was launched on 1 June 2010 at a lunch in the European Parliament which was kindly hosted by Pilar del Castillo Vera MEP. MEPs and senior policy maker participated and the latest scorecard generated much interest and discussion.
The annual ECTA Regulatory Scorecard, is produced in consultation with National Regulatory Authorities and telecoms companies, and benchmarks the telecoms regulatory framework in 22 European countries. Results show that in the most competitive markets where non-discrimination is strongly enforced and competitors have access to bottleneck infrastructure at fair prices, such as the Netherlands, the UK and Denmark, citizens and businesses get better services at lower prices resulting in high broadband usage. By contrast, entrants in the Czech Republic and Bulgaria face the most difficult market conditions and lag behind EU average on broadband take-up.
