The European Regulators Group (ERG) launched on the 4th of May a consultation document covering access to next generation networks.
The document deals with regulatory issues and provides guidance on different fibre roll-out scenarios. It focuses explicitly on wireline next generation access, providing general proposals on amending the Recommendation on relevant markets susceptible to ex-ante regulation, which is currently being reviewed by the European Commission. The document explores cost factors, co-location issues, duct sharing and fibre to the building scenarios amongst others.
The consultation will end on 11 June 2007.
