The Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) was established by regulation published in December 2009. According to this Regulation, “BEREC should continue the work of the ERG, developing cooperation among NRAs, and between NRAs and the Commission, so as to ensure the consistent application in all Member States of the EU regulatory framework for electronic communications networks and services, and thereby contributing to the development of the internal market”. Article 5 of this Regulation sets out that the Board of Regulators of BEREC shall adopt an annual work programme before the end of each year preceding that to which the work programme relates. Given the timing of its establishment, the BEREC consultation period ran from 9th February, 2010 to 2nd March, 2010.

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
