On Friday 6 November, the UK Spectrum Policy Forum is holding a workshop on Section 3.4' Spectrum management and wireless connectivity' of the EU Telecoms Framework Review. This workshop will be an opportunity to discuss and identify where the weight of responses from SPF members might send a strong message to the Commission about where change is needed - and where it is not.
The online questionnaire published by the European Commission focuses on potential changes to the regulatory framework for electronic communications in order to deliver the Digital Single Market.
Topics include: Network access regulation, Spectrum management and wireless connectivity, Sector-specific regulation for communications services, The universal service regime, and Institutional set-up and governance. Responses are required by 7 December.
The SPF invites you to take a critical look at the questions specifically focusing on spectrum management and wireless connectivity, and will discuss:
- Is the Commission asking the right questions?
- What as spectrum users do you think should change?
- What should the Commission leave well alone?
the UK Spectrum Policy Forum developing a response to the questions specifically focusing on spectrum and techUK's Communications Policy Council is developing a response to the overall Framework Review. techUK held an event on the 22nd October on the Ofcom SRDC and the Telecoms Framework Review - a write-up of the key issues discussed is available here.
