25th European Regional Conference of the International Telecommunications Society (ITS), Brussels, Belgium, 22-25 June 2014

Private investors alone and with governments have funded the laying of cables. Consequently, previous calls for regulated access are no longer appropriate, with the need for more detailed analysis of remaining bottlenecks to ensure affordable prices in telephony and Internet access.
