Presentation of the Charles River Associates report on "Economic Replicability Testing for NGA"

The report comes in the wake of the implementation of the 2013 European Commission Recommendation on non-discrimination and costing methodologies, which includes an Economic Replicability Test (ERT) for NGA services.

Almost two years into the implementation, the CRA report proposes a consistent and proportionate approach to promote efficient investment and safeguard competition when applying the ERT. The report feeds into the debate on future measures to incentivise investment in superfast broadband and provides strategic input at a time in which National Regulatory Authorities are working to implement the 2013 Recommendation.

This event will provide the occasion to discuss with high-level stakeholders on EU policies incentivising fibre roll-out.
