CABLE SHOULD BE USED FOR TELEPHONES, SAYS EU COMMISSIONER

By CBR Staff Writer

The European Union should set rules forcing member states to allow cable television networks to use their infrastructure to provide telephone services, Competition Commissioner Karel Van Miert said: according to Reuter, he pointed out that the UK is the only country that currently allows it, and that the move had brought a dramatic increase in the interest of investors in British cable systems; he also said telecommunications users in Europe were severely disadvantaged by the excessive charges that they face, the rates for a three-mile link being on average five times higher in Europe than the US.
