Viviane Reding, Member of the EC in charge of Information Society and Media, received Ed Richards, CEO of Ofcom, the independent regulator and competition authority for the British communications industries. They were expected to discuss the EC call for national regulators to act to boost investment in optic fibre. But Ed Richards had already said that Ofcom's role was to deliver a robust regulatory framework allowing industry to deploy when there is a clear business case for doing so and which brings benefits to consumers.
