Regulated NGA


The European Commission has published its Recommendation on regulated access to next generation networks.


On 20 September 2010, the European Commission published Recommendation on regulated access to next generation access networks C(2010) 6223. The goal of this Recommendation is to promote investment, competition and innovation in the broadband market, in particular in the context of transition to next generation access networks (NGA). The Recommendation sets out a common approach to promoting consistent implementation of remedies with regard to next generation access networks, on the basis of market analysis pursuant to the Framework Directive (2002/21/EC) and the Access Directive (2002/19/EC). The Commission document indicates that the review of markets 4 (wholesale (physical) access to network infrastructure) and 5 (wholesale broadband access) defined in the Commission Recommendation 2007/879/EC of 17 December 2007 on relevant product and service markets within the electronic communications sector susceptible to ex ante regulation in accordance with Directive 2002/21/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on a common regulatory framework, should take account of NGA networks and should be performed in a coordinated and timely manner by each NRA.

The Commission Recommendation also includes a definition of next generation access networks according to which they are "wired access networks which consist wholly or in part of optical elements and which are capable of delivering broadband access services with enhanced characteristics (such as higher throughput) as compared to those provided over already existing copper networks. In most cases NGAs are the result of an upgrade of an already existing copper or coaxial access network".
