In a statement, it identifies the operators as Netia, UPC Polska, Multimedia Polska, Vectra Investments, Inea and Toya. It adds that the conditions for ensuring access to telecom cables in multi-dwelling buildings “constitute a universal set of rules and principles when applying for access to telecommunications cables”.
UKE continues: “The proposed regulation is designed to meet the needs of telecommunications undertakings, while not interfering with the operation of infrastructure operators. The consultation also covers a tool which will be used by telecommunications undertakings to determine access fees.
“The consulted draft decisions pursue the Strategic lines of actions of the President of UKE for 2017-2021. The intention of the regulator is to promote co-investments, support the development and sharing of infrastructure as well as to ensure efficient cooperation among operators. The drafts, preceded by an analysis of the terms of cooperation and a workshop with market players, implement the concepts of the Digital Agenda for Europe and Europe 2020 strategy. They also execute the concepts of the Framework Directive and the Telecommunications Act. Symmetric access to infrastructure is also one of the assumptions of the European Electronic Communications Code adopted last year”.
UKE concludes by asking for “precise and constructive comments supported by relevant arguments”.
It also does not rule out the possibility of conducting a second round of consultations.
