In the current Guidelines, BEREC deals with the consistent implementation of Article 22, paragraphs 2, 3 and 4. These parts in the article describe some optional policies that NRAs/OCAs may undertake in order to inform private and public agents of the non-availability of existing or planned VHCN networks or networks offering at least 100 Mbps download speed in areas with precise boundaries (“designated areas”), and furthermore to invite agents to declare their intentions to deploy VHCNs in these areas.

These Guidelines aim at providing a common understanding of these provisions, guidance on how to designate areas and on the procedures to be followed in publishing information and inviting agents to declare their intentions to invest in order to ensure that such procedures are efficient, objective, transparent and non-discriminatory, whereby no undertaking is excluded a priori (as required by Art 22 (4) EECC).
