Alice Selby, Senior Head of Legal and Regulatory Affairs, T-Mobile, Czech Republic

For almost fifteen years I have been working as a lawyer in the telecoms industry, focussing among other things on telecoms regulation, both the sector specific regulation as well as the general competition law regulation, data protection and consumer protection. In this article I would like to look closer at the Review of the New Regulatory Framework of the EU for Electronic Communications (hereinafter referred to as “Review”), the actual need for it and also the changes that it brings.
