Regulation and Performance of Electronic Communications

As known, the Digital Agenda for Europe contains 101 actions that will boost the EU economy and allow citizens and businesses to take the most out of digital technologies. While in some pillars a number of the Agenda’s Targets have been almost reached, in other pillars a lot is yet to be done. The articles in the issue investigate how far we are from reaching some of the Targets and what is the role that regulation could play in getting closer to them. The contributions focus on specific aspects of different topics, that is spectrum sharing, NGA, roaming and e-commerce, describing the status quo and analysing how current or foreseen regulatory interventions could enhance the performances of the existing electronic communication networks to the benefit of European citizens.
