Telecoms Law and Regulation Europe

Consolidation, convergence and digital transformation in the telecommunications sector... what does it all mean for you?

Hear directly from the European Commission, national regulators, leading operators from across Europe and specialised lawyers

What's in store for 2017...

Brexit: Challenges and Opportunities

Brexit: the biggest question on everybody's minds poses a direct impact on both the UK and EU member states. How is the regulatory landscape going to develop once the UK is no longer bound by EU legislation? And what are the potential hurdles that Brexit may pose for international roaming in Europe? Our international panel will be exploring the challenges, risks and opportunities that Brexit may have on both EU and UK telecommunications law and regulation. 

The European Electronic Communications Code

The European Commission has recently published its proposals to establish the European Electronic Communications Code, with an intention of harmonising regulation of telecommunications across the EU. Join us as we outline the proposals in detail and our panel session, bringing together experts from all sides of the telecommunications sector, will provide initial thoughts on the EECC and what changes we may expect to see in the not too distant future. 

Market Consolidation and Functional Separation

The industry is no stranger to market consolidation, and we can assume that 2017 will be no different. Here we will be providing a complete overview of the most important mergers in Europe and the impact these cases have on investment in the telecommunications sector. With the future governance of BT and Openreach on everybody's minds, we will be exploring functional separation, and what we can learn through an examination of recent cases. 

Universal Broadband Policy

Universal broadband policy has been one of the most pressing issues on the agenda for EU member states over the years, and there is still a long way to go. This session will discuss the growing importance of universal broadband for a digital society and the legal and regulatory hurdles needed to overcome to make broadband truly accessible for all. 

An Essential Guide to Consumer Protection

Consumer protection has increasingly been high on the agenda for regulators and competition authorities in the telecommunications sector, with recent investigations resulting in record penalties being issued to operators. This session will explore just how active regulatory authorities are becoming on the consumer side, with an in-depth look into the latest investigations.
