RTR-WIK Workshop on subnational markets

WIK has organised together with the Austrian regulator RTR a workshop on subnational markets which took place in Vienna on 20 June 2008. The Workshop which was attended by a large number of representatives from regulatory authorities and operators discussed the pros and cons of defining subnational markets and geographically differentiating remedies.

  • What should be the criteria for defining subnational markets?
  • What are the consequences for the future availability of wholesale offerings if access obligations are removed in parts of the territory?
  • Which is the impact on the vertical consistency of prices across access levels and what is the impact on the business models of alternative operators and competition in the retail broadband access market?
  • Will consumers benefit from geographically differentiated remedies?
  • Should regulators bother about subnational market definition or implement geographically differentiated remedies based on SMP in a national market?

Those are a few of the many issues which have been raised in the debate. For programme and presentations, please click here.
