Next 9-10 October, 2013, Barcelona, Spain, will be the hosting city for one more EMERG workshop, on MVNOs.
In order to tackle this subject, on an initial basis, this workshop aims at identifying the reasons for this divergence and sharing information on the involvement of regulators in decisions on why and how MVNO access is implemented. Furthermore, EMERG members will explore what the outcome of the introduction of MVNOs has been in terms of marketplace competition, and also assess the benefits for consumers and the impact on MNO business cases. Finally, by sharing know-how and comparing solutions that might be used by countries to review their policies on MVNO access, EMERG members will also be better able to implement any related regulatory intervention as may be necessary.
To this end, CMT, the spanish regulator and the hosting NRA of this workshop, has already confirmed the presence at this event of network and virtual operators speakers, together with CMT experts among others to be confirmed.
Finally, the workshop will produce a report that will provide a narrative of the discussed themes and will also present proposals for follow up activities, if that shall be the case.
