Final vote within three weeks

The battle for Internet User Rights in Europe has been ongoing for the last two years, as lawmakers across the pond have been working on a new package of telecommunications laws. The "Telecoms Reform Package" is supposed to amend a set of laws passed in 2002, and seeks to unify laws covering the European communications market.



Laws within the package cover a wide range of issues, such as strengthening consumer rights; giving consumers more choice by reinforcing competition between telecoms operators; promoting investment into new communication infrastructures; freeing radio spectrum used by analog broadcasts for wireless broadband services; and making communication networks more reliable and more secure.

It also proposes the establishment of a European Telecom Market Authority known as BEREC (Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications) in order to ensure that important communication services such as broadband internet access, data roaming, and mobile phone usage on planes and ships are regulated consistently across the 27 member states of the European Union.
