The public consultation was open since the 10th of October until the 21 November 2019. 27 contributors responded to the consultation including operators (9), operator’s associations (10), public authorities (4) and citizens (2). The contributions were varied and lengthy adding up to 166 pages of comments. All contributions were published on the BEREC website, taking into account requests for confidentiality and restricted use of personal data.
