About this initiative

Summary

The European Electronic Communications Code is designed to protect EU consumers and businesses from excessive prices for telephony services. The Code will require the Commission to adopt a delegated act setting maximum fixed and mobile voice call termination rates in the EU by 31/12/2020.
