ComCom calls on Parliament to amend Telecommunications Act to enable VULA

Monday 25 June 2018 | 18:17 CET | News
Swiss regulator ComCom has rejected a request from alternative operator Sunrise to order virtual unbundled access (VULA) on the Swisscom network. The regulator lacks the means to implement such a regulation, but said Parliament could act under the ongoing review of the Telecommunications Act. Lawmakers could introduce an obligation for an operator exerting significant market power to provide technology-neutral and virtual access to local loop.
