BEREC Opinion on the Review of the Intra-EU Communications Regulation
In order to support the European Commission’s assessment of the effects of the existing measures set out in the BEREC Regulation on intra-EU communications as required by recital 53 of the Roaming Regulation, BEREC has prepared an opinion analysing the measures imposed and drawing on data collected for the Intra-EU Communications Reports.
BEREC’s analysis shows that the BEREC Regulation supports the reduction of average revenue per unit for regulated intra-EU communication services for both mobile and fixed services. However, this reduction does not have a significant impact on the regulated volumes consumed or on the number of consumers using these services. In addition, as the percentage of price regulated intra-EU services to total intra-EU services (for consumers only) has remained quite stable over time, it could be concluded that in general the BEREC Regulation does not have a significant impact on the consumption of intra-EU communication services.
