Amendment 71
Dita Charanzová
ALDE
Article 79 – paragraph 1

1. Member States shall ensure that all end-users in their territory have access at an affordable price, in the light of specific national conditions, to available functional internet access and voice communications services at the quality specified in their territory, including the underlying connection, at least at a fixed location.

1. Member States shall ensure that all consumers in their territory have access at an affordable price, in the light of specific national conditions, to an available internet access and voice communications services at the quality specified in their territory, including the underlying connection, at least at a fixed location.

Justification: Universal Service is designed for the social welfare of private consumers. It is not a tool for providing access for businesses or other legal persons, therefore the term 'end-users' is not corrected for Title I. The Term 'functional' is not defined or needed. An internal access service is defined and covers all potential offerings under Universal service. 'Functional' seems only as a replacement for the word 'minimum' and that is set out in paragraph 2.


Amendment 73 -

Amendment 73
Dita Charanzová
ALDE
Article 79 – paragraph 2

2. Member States shall define the functional internet access service referred to in paragraph 1 with a view to adequately reflect services used by the majority of end-users in their territory. To that end, the functional internet access service shall be capable of supporting the minimum set of services set out in Annex V.

2. In accordance with BEREC guidelines, national regulatory authorities shall define the minimum functionality of the internet access service referred to in paragraph 1 with a view to reflect the services used by the majority of consumers in their territory or relevant parts of their territory. To that end, the internet access service shall be capable of supporting at least the minimum set of services set out in Annex V.

Justification: Member States may choice to define internet access service functionality on the basis of regional averages instead of whole Member States, which might lower average speeds for some, while for others might magnify an average beyond what infrastructure can support, especially in under populated rural areas. At the same time, it is necessary to the inclusion of a minimum set of services in annex V does not mean that services should be limited to those services alone and that EU rules on Net neutrality fully apply, this is made clear in the matching recital.

Those guidelines shall be updated annually to reflect technological advances and changes in consumer usage patterns.
