ETNO note on BEREC’s preliminary assessment
Brussels, 11 October 2022 – ETNO and its members are working to provide additional fact-based evidence for the upcoming European Commission consultation. The debate has moved beyond industry proposals and beyond Europe, as US and Asian regulators are already considering the contribution of tech giants to network costs.
Also, the EU debate has moved beyond the mere peering market, and it now encompasses developments such as the metaverse and the overall sustainability of the ecosystem, as recently stated by Commissioner Breton. BEREC’s preliminary assessment does not bring new data to the table: we confirm we remain eager to contribute to additional forward-looking analysis by EU policymakers and regulators.
