My own progress report on European electronic communication: Is there progress?
I still have to find a national operator when I move to another EU country instead of having one European mobile phone operator with the same prices and services wherever I am.
The Commission's Progress report on the Single European Electronic Communications Market is a little more detailed than my very personal view, but they also get money to produce a lot of text.
The summary of their report: "There is still work left." Would be surprising if a governmental bureaucracy would one day say: "Yepp, everything is done, we'll go on holidays for the next years."
More interesting than the simple progress report - at least more interesting for all of you interested professionally in electronic communication - is the first addendum to the report, which on over 400 pages lays down the development in the communications market and electronic communications regulation in the EU and in each EU member state. That is kind of a resource worth looking at.
And in the second addendum there are all the raw data, diagrams, tables and sources of the statistics - another 130 fun pages for all of you whose lives are dominated by communication markets, either because you (de-)regulate them or because you earn money on them (or both).
For me this is too much text, but I thought you might be interested to take a look, now that the weekend is approaching.
