NEW WIK STUDY REVEALS COPPER SWITCH-OFF STRATEGY ESSENTIAL FOR ACHIEVING EUROPEAN BROADBAND TARGETS

Brussels, 12th April 2011

WIK’s new study examines the business case for fibre investment and assesses the effect of regulated wholesale charges on investment decisions, retail prices, competition and consumer welfare. The report concludes that, to stimulate rapid fibre deployment and take-up, regulators should signal significant reductions in copper wholesale charges whilst permitting the copper network to be rapidly switched off if open fibre is installed. The full report and press release are available below.

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.

WIK NGA STUDY FOR ECTA REVEALS HIGH COSTS WILL LIMIT SUPERFAST BROADBAND

ECTA calls for focus on availability and openness of fibre networks, warns against unprofitable duplication

Brussels, 16th September 2008 – Groundbreaking research published today by WIK, reveals that high fixed costs will limit the availability of super fast broadband to many European homes and rural businesses. France has the best prospect of fibre rollout, with viability to 25% of households. The study also shows that the economics simply do not stack up for competitive operators to duplicate costly infrastructure on a wide scale and that access to fibre is a win-win scenario as it improves the business case for all providers, to the ultimate benefit of consumers
