Electronic communication is a true success story for the EU. Since national telecoms markets were opened up to competition in 1998, users and consumers have benefited from more choice, lower prices and innovative products and services. It is this success story of open markets and enhanced competition in the telecoms sector that the Commission intends to continue with this year’s review of the EU’s regulatory framework for electronic communications of 2002.
