COMMUNICATION on the review of the analyses of former relevant markets No. 1 and 2 (sixth round)

Pursuant to Section 51 Paragraph 1 of the Electronic Communications Act, CTU launched a relevant market analyses (sixth round) of the following markets:

  • Former market No. 1 – Wholesale call termination on individual public telephone networks provided at a fixed location,
  • Former market No. 2 - Wholesale voice call termination on individual mobile networks

The analyses will be done in compliance with the Measure of General Nature No. OOP/1/05.2021-5, as amended by the Measure of General Nature No. OOP/1/07.2023-5, laying down the relevant markets in electronic communications, including criteria assessing significant market power.

Given that the markets concerned are no longer listed in the Commission Recommendation (EU) 2020/2245 as relevant markets susceptible for ex-ante regulation within the European Union, CTU will proceed in accordance with Article 7 (Transitional Provisions) of the Measure of General Nature and will, as part of the analysis, determine whether the above markets concerned at national level cumulatively meet the three criteria test under Article 3 of the Measure. Relevant markets for the purposes of ex-ante regulation must meet all three criteria simultaneously, failure to meet any one of them renders the market insusceptible for ex-ante regulation.
