The formulation of a next generation regulatory model for access and interconnection by 2020 needs to respond to the many pressure points to which the existing regulatory framework for electronic communications has been subject since 2002. These factors range from the analytical elements of the system of market analysis and remedy selection, commercial and technological developments, the adoption of new policy orientations by the European Commission, and the institutional framework for decision-making. The Paper explores the value of maintaining fundamental elements of the present regulatory regime, while adopting a more “hybridized” approach which seeks to bridge the twin disciplines of regulation and competition law.
