SVP Advisors participated in a Consortium which was commissioned a Study by the EC on the “Impacts of EU Policy options for revision of the universal service provision”. This Study intended to assist the Directorate-General for Information Society and Media (DG INFSO) in the formulation of potential policy options and providing qualitative and quantitative assessment. In particular, this Study aimed at assessing whether universal service at the EU level is an appropriate tool to advance basic broadband development and if so, when and how it should be used, or whether this should be left to other EU policy instruments or national measures. Based on our study, as well as the results of an extensive public consultation process, the EC decided in the end not to include broadband access as part of the Universal Service.
