The European Commission has adopted what it is calling its “most ambitious plan in 26 years of telecoms market reform”. The proposed revamp should see a reduction in consumer charges, and will simplify red tape faced by companies, bringing a range of new rights for both users and service providers.

European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes has said that different charges and regulatory systems across the EU are hurting broadband investment. The statement precedes the new proposal for a Single EU Telecoms Market.
