We are firm believers that there are no limits to the positive outcomes delivered by infrastructure-based competition. What better than to have parties compete to provide increasingly choosy and tech savvy customers with the best performing networks? In this day and age in Europe, it has been proven that continued investment by alternative providers is providing an evolving choice of innovative services - at speeds never before imagined. At the heart of this set of choices is competition among platforms and technologies. Consumers benefit the most when different operators compete with one another to build better and faster networks and to innovate both in commercial and technological terms to win customers.

As BEREC 2012 Chair Georg Serentschy recently observed, platform competition is the most effective form of competition - and history has shown that where multiple platforms compete for customers, the services and facilities provided in those areas are typically two years ahead of areas in which there is no such competition.

Advancing a policy based on only one single network would serve only to miss a prime opportunity to deliver the best outcomes to end users. It would also fail to take into account the questionable strategy of relying on one single network in today’s infrastructure-centric society.  Not only would a single network policy raise security and resilience concerns, it would also represent an economic risk as a result of reliance on a single investment and choice of technology.
