The Report presents the results of the 4th data collection on Intra-EU communications by BEREC that took place after the implementation of the Regulation. BEREC has also collected data for a six-month period (1 October 2018 – 31 March 2019) before the implementation of the Regulation. For comparability reasons, some figures in this Report include also data from operators during period 1 October 2018 – 31 March 2019.

The Report covers the period 1 April 2022 – 31 March 2023, split by two periods: 1 April 2022 to 30 September 2022 and 1 October 2022 to 31 March 2023 (corresponding to the 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarters of 2022 and the 1st quarter of 2023). The figures presented in this report are based on data collected from national regulatory authorities (NRAs) on Intra-EU communications. The figures contained in this Report present information on traffic, revenues, consumption, etc. regarding Intra-EU services. Similarly to the periodic International Roaming Benchmark Report, all of the data collected through the data collection is included in the accompanying .xls file and published on the BEREC website.


This data collection on intra-EU communications is based on Regulation (EU) of the European Parliament and of the Council, of 25 November 2015, as amended by Regulation 2018/1971,[1] of the European Parliament and of the Council, of 11 December 2018, which includes new requirements for monitoring the price developments of regulated intra-EU communication services. The Regulation tasks BEREC with regularly collecting data from NRAs on the development of retail charges for regulated Intra-EU communication services in order to assess the competitive developments in the Union-wide Intra-EU communications markets.
