EU announces telecom infringement cases

I have posted earlier about the telecom review currently underway in the EU. In connection with that, the European Commission has filed 9 new "infringement" cases (see this page for details). These infringements are the mechanism by which member states can be held to EU-wide policy levels.

So the EU is shaping the regulatory framework to keep up with new market in Telecommunications? or because there is a problem arise from a monopolistic bottleneck in local infrastructure networks. It seems like they are concerning about the availability of caller location information, the single European emergency number 112, and number portability among countries. Are these infringements resulting from EU-wide economics integration? Probably, we will learn more as time goes by.
