BEREC commissioned Analysys Mason and Scott Marcus to study the approach taken by national regulatory authorities (NRAs) in selected non-European benchmark countries to address net-neutrality issues. The benchmark countries are:
• Chile (SUBTEL)
• India (TRAI)
• USA (Federal Communications Commission (FCC)).
The study aims to contribute to an informed public debate and constitute a valuable source of practical information for European NRAs and BEREC while they are implementing EU regulation 2015/2120. The study also aims to help BEREC and European NRAs to define their options for addressing net-neutrality issues and identify the requirements and challenges they may face in future. It should be noted that the study does not include comparisons between the benchmark countries and the European regulatory framework.
