Regulatory Asymmetry? The Competition Between Telecommunication Operators and Other ICT Players

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Laurent De Muyter (Jones Day) asks Regulatory Asymmetry? The Competition Between Telecommunication Operators and Other ICT Players.

ABSTRACT: Under EU law, telecommunication operators must open their main resources (networks) to service providers including other ICT providers under far reaching and sometimes conceptually inconsistent conditions. But they have limited access to the resources operated by the latter (content, data, handset, software). This distorts competition, hampers network related investments, and makes high bids less plausible in future spectrum auctions.
