NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

NGA Regulation - A rocky road to the data superhighway (2nd edition)

This report will shortly present the different NGA architectures and their specific challenges before taking a deep dive into the regulatory toolkit. After closely examining the EU's common of rules and some member states' individual regulatory approaches, the report will conclude by putting the EU's NGA debate in a broader geographic and regulatory context.

Key questions

• What are the tools available to regulators to favour widespread competition between and on NGA networks?

• With the switch from copper to fiber, access networks undergo radical change. Is the" ladder of investment" still the right concept to deal with the arising regulatory issues?

• Which are the approaches adopted in some of the major EU countries when Market conditions vary significantly between member states?

• While Europe has an excellent track record in legacy broadband services, fibre seems to struggle to gain traction. Can the Commission's recent NGA recommendation reinvigorate network investment?

• Different regulatory models for NGA have emerged around the globe, ranging from largely unregulated telco/cableco duopolies as in the US to service competition on mutualised infrastructures in Australia and Singapore. Will the EU's approach allow it to reclaim leadership in broadband?
