The EU’s telecoms regulator Berec has adopted new wholesale roaming guidelines for national regulators at its latest plenary meeting. Berec announced the guidelines at a public debriefing in Brussels on the plenary.
The new Guidelines replace the BEREC Guidelines of 2012 (BoR (12) 107 and include the changes of the amended Roaming Regulation. These guidelines shall contribute to the strengthening of competition on mobile markets and therefore to the enhancement of connectivity and innovation in Europe.

The aim is to provide guidance to national regulators on resolving any disputes or taking enforcement action when mobile network operators do not meet reasonable requests for wholesale roaming access, as required by the latest EU roaming regulation.
BEREC has also reasserted its commitment to contribute to the implementation of Roam-Like-at-home everywhere in Europe as of 15 June. The Plenary was indeed the occasion to share experiences of the implementation of Roam like at home at national level, through the presentation of specific national cases.
