Vivian Reding on Telecoms regulation

You might find this speech by EU Commsioner for Information Society and Media interesting. Here are some points from her speech:

I have come to the conclusion that the instrument of functional separation should be added to the remedies tool box of national telecom regulators ...

... a symbol for the single market for telecoms is the creation of the new European Telecom Market Authority which will be an integral part of the reform package.

As you would expect, there are many caveats to those points in the speech. It clearly is a preview to the new regulatory frameork that will be forthcoming in the next month.
