ECTA URGES GREATER ROLE FOR COMPETITION IN DELIVERING UNIVERSAL SERVICE

ECTA, the European Competitive Telecommunications Association, has called on the European Commission to thoroughly review its thinking on universal service to promote a more competition-driven approach to meeting consumer needs. In its response to the Commission's Review of the scope of universal service, ECTA suggests that, in future, if regulators put in place strong mechanisms to promote competition such as "access", we can move from the current situation, where the incumbent is expected to deliver universal service, to one where operators compete to offer a wide variety of voice and Internet services to consumers.
