Europe lags US in 4G network rollout
Europe’s competitiveness weakened by mobile telecoms infrastructure regulation
Europe needs a more investment-friendly regulatory framework for mobile telecoms infrastructure operators in order to increase competitiveness, says a report from CMS, the top 10 international law firm. The report analysed 12 major cross-border mobile network sharing deals announced or signed in Europe in 2013 and the regulatory frameworks behind them.
Simon Sanders, leading the CMS Telecoms Group in the Netherlands: "Collectively, Europe needs to wake up to the threat it will face from other jurisdictions if it does not take a more joined up approach to encouraging investment in its high-speed mobile networks.”
