PTS proposes to scrap some of Telia's obligations on wholesale fixed access market

Friday 17 April 2020 | 14:01 CET | News
Swedish communications regulator PTS is proposing changes to Telia Company's obligations on the market for local access to network infrastructure, and is inviting comments by 04 May. This follows the EU Commission's veto this February of the regulator's previous proposals on market 3a for fibre access. The changes include scrapping the obligation to provide access to ducting and virtual access to copper networks. PTS is also proposing to update the prices for copper access.
