Kroes slams broadband 'regulatory mess'

EurActiv -European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes has slammed the “regulatory mess” affecting broadband in a warm up to forthcoming proposals to shake up the sector, which will form part of the new Single Market for Telecommunications.

 "Today’s guidance to regulators just doesn’t give businesses – old or new – the certainty they need to make investments. It’s time to change," Kroes said on Friday (30 August).

Telecoms companies currently face different charges and regulatory systems depending on which member state they are operating in, making it harder to enter new markets.
