ComReg issues finding of non-compliance to eir related to wholesale local access obligations

23 Feb 2022

Irish telecoms watchdog the Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg) has notified fixed line incumbent eir that, as per its findings, the latter has not complied with obligations imposed upon it related to the wholesale local access (WLA) market. In a press release regarding the matter, ComReg noted that it relates to the charges levied by eir for duct access, with the regulator having conducted an investigation in which it sought to determine the telco’s compliance with obligations imposed under the ‘WLA Decision Instrument’ published back in November 2018; that decision included price control obligations and transparency obligations for eir.

According to ComReg, eir has been given until 28 March 2022 to make representations to the watchdog in response to its findings.
