Cable Europe would like to express its support to the Commission’s draft Recommendation on non-discrimination and costing methodologies.
As Commissioner Kroes said on 30 January, with this Recommendation she sets out “a package both flexible and balanced. With copper access staying stable – which evidence shows is the right approach. With stricter rules against discrimination, so all in the market get a level playing field”.
Cable Europe believes that this draft provides the right cement for a positive investment climate for both incumbents and alternative operators. The Recommendation is also the right signal for spurring competition between different technologies, supporting the so-called intermodal infrastructure competition.
