Regulator opens 3G network sharing consultation

10 Dec 2008

The French telecoms regulatory authority Arcep today launched a public consultation process on the subject of 3G network sharing, Dow Jones reports. The watchdog is keen to examine the conditions and degree to which UMTS mobile network resources can be shared in the country. Although the sharing of passive and active network elements is already permitted, Arcep’s new consultation will focus on the precise obligations the regulator should define for sharing 3G facilities.
