Netnod comments on proposal regarding the implementation of the European Electronic Communications code

Netnod have sent comments to the Swedish Ministry of Infrastructure on the memorandum with ID I2019/02319/D The memorandum is a proposal regarding implementation of Directive (EU) 2018/1972 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2018 establishing the European Electronic Communications Code.

Netnod have made comments related to legislation related primarily to Article 80 and 113 of the directive.

Comments related to Article 80 discuss the need for the dark fibre product in the access network to be available on the wholesale market according to non-discriminatory terms, which Netnod believe is extremely important.

Comments related to Article 113 point out that the primary distribution mechanism for digital radio today and in the future is over the Internet, and that, because of this, the regulator should focus on Internet access to vehicles of category M instead of specific receivers for specialized protocols for audio transmissions.
