The current Guidelines aim at providing common guidance to NRAs/OCAs on how to verify the QoS-1 indicators as defined in the Core Guidelines, including, where considered necessary and appropriate, the use of QoS-2 and QoS-3 information. This is, the verification of the current reach of broadband networks and the quality of the services that they could offer as declared by the operator, including the verification of the declaration of an area or grid as being covered with a VHCN. The validation of address databases and the verification of information regarding planned deployments is out of the scope of the Guidelines.

Stakeholders were invited to submit their inputs from the 15th of December 2020 to the 27th of January 2021. Seven responses were received, from operators, operators’ associations, public authorities and others. One respondent wants to keep its identity confidential. All the contributions are published on the BEREC website, including a non-confidential version of the confidential submission.
