Amendment 298
Michel Reimon
Verts/ALE
Article 2 – paragraph 1 – point 1

(1) ‘electronic communications network’ means transmission systems, whether or not based on a permanent infrastructure or centralised administration capacity, and, where applicable, switching or routing equipment and other resources, including network elements which are not active, which permit the conveyance of signals by wire, radio, optical or other electromagnetic means, including satellite networks, fixed (circuit- and packet-switched, including Internet) and mobile terrestrial networks, electricity cable systems, to the extent that they are used for the purpose of transmitting signals, networks used for radio and television broadcasting, and cable television networks, irrespective of the type of information conveyed;

(1) ‘electronic communications network’ means transmission systems, whether or not based on a permanent infrastructure or centralised administration capacity, and, where applicable, switching or routing equipment and other resources, including network elements which are not active, which permit the conveyance of signals by wire, radio, optical or other electromagnetic means, including satellite networks, fixed (circuit- and packet-switched, including Internet) and mobile terrestrial networks, electricity cable systems, to the extent that they are used for the purpose of transmitting signals, networks used for radio and television broadcasting, and cable television networks, irrespective of the type of information conveyed; it does not include network elements managed by individuals in the context of not-for-profit activities;

Justification: Individuals participating in a not-for-profit network (such as radio local area networks) or providing not-for-profit services shall not be subject to the obligations imposed on legal persons providing networks or services. Specifically, the strict obligations provided by the Directive 2002/58/CE would be disproportionate and impracticable if imposed on individual volunteers, who should only be subject to the obligations set by the General Data Protection Regulation.

Amendment 299
Evžen Tošenovský
ECR
Article 2 – paragraph 1 – point 2

(2) 'very high capacity network' means an electronic communications network which either consists wholly of optical fibre elements at least up to the distribution point at the serving location or which is capable of delivering under usual peak-time conditions similar network performance in terms of available down- and uplink bandwidth, resilience, error-related parameters, and latency and its variation. Network performance can be considered similar regardless of whether the end-user experience varies due to the inherently different characteristics of the medium by which the network ultimately connects with the network termination point.

(2) 'very high capacity network' means an publicly available electronic communications network which either consists wholly or partially of optical fibre elements.

Amendment 301
Michel Reimon
Verts/ALE
Article 2 – paragraph 1 – point 2

(2) 'very high capacity network' means an electronic communications network which either consists wholly of optical fibre elements at least up to the distribution point at the serving location or which is capable of delivering under usual peak-time conditions similar network performance in terms of available down- and uplink bandwidth, resilience, error-related parameters, and latency and its variation. Network performance can be considered similar regardless of whether the end-user experience varies due to the inherently different characteristics of the medium by which the network ultimately connects with the network termination point.

(2) 'very high capacity network' means an electronic communications network which either consists wholly of optical fibre elements at least up to the distribution point at the serving location corresponding in the fixed-line connection case to the premises and in the mobile connection case to the base station, or which is capable of delivering under usual peak-time conditions at least the same network performance in terms of available down- and uplink bandwidth, resilience, error-related parameters, and latency and its variation. Network performance can be considered at least the same regardless of whether the end-user experience varies due to the inherently different characteristics of the medium by which the network ultimately connects with the network termination point.

Justification: Clarification included from the respective Recital 13. Moreover, strengthening the performance benchmark while lifting its upper limit. This clarifies that – independent of the used technology – better performing infrastructures would also be considered ‘very high capacity’.

Michel Reimon
Verts/ALE
Article 3 – paragraph 1 – subparagraph 2

National regulatory and other competent authorities may contribute within their competencies to ensuring the implementation of policies aimed at the promotion of cultural and linguistic diversity, as well as media pluralism.

National regulatory and other competent authorities shall contribute within their competencies to ensuring the implementation of policies aimed at the promotion of cultural and linguistic diversity, as well as media pluralism.

Justification: Despite the fact that the Directive does not lay down substantive rules regarding content and only on networks and services, national authorities need to play close attention to the impact that markets have on each other. The degree of competition in telecommunications markets can significantly impact media and content pluralism in Europe, reducing consumers’ ability to access the content and services of their choice.

Article 3 – paragraph 2 – point a

(a) promote access to, and take-up of, very high capacity data connectivity, both fixed and mobile, by all Union citizens and businesses;

(a) promote the availability and affordability of and access to very high capacity data connectivity, both fixed and mobile and of interpersonal communications services, by all Union citizens and businesses;

Justification: In a market economy where consumers can leverage their collective power, it should always be them (and not governments, regulators or companies) who freely decide whether they want to take up a new service or not. The objective of EU telecom regulation has always been to guide regulatory intervention towards the offer side of the market, ensuring wholesale and retail competition, and the availability of services and networks. If regulation would aim to guide the demand side of the market too, it could condition the promotion of efficiency, transparency and fairness in markets, and of consumer protection. The regulatory framework must therefore continue focusing on availability and affordability of services.

In the case of right of use for spectrum, the right holder shall have the right to object to any proposed amendment based on its existing and future spectrum usage plan and the need to safeguard investment.

Justification: Legal certainty as to spectrum usage rights is key to the promotion of investment in mobile networks and in particular in the next generation of mobile, 5G. It is proposed that operators be given the opportunity of objecting to spectrum rights changes on the basis of limited conditions such as future networks spectrum usage plans and the need to safeguard investment not yet fully depreciated.
