UK tops ECTA’s Regulatory Scorecard

There was a sign of appreciation for Ofcom today from ECTA, the trade body for the telcos that compete with incumbent former-monopolies, when the UK came top in its annual “Regulatory scorecard”. This detailed assessment shows the UK with a significant lead in the categories of “Effectiveness of Implementation” of the Regulatory Framework and in “General Market Access Conditions”, and narrowly being beaten to the top slot by Denmark in the category for “Institutional Framework”.

France and the Netherlands also performed well, although Germany came third from bottom amongst the 17 countries analysed.

Unsurprisingly ETNO, representing the incumbent operators, disagreed strongly the ECTA’s analysis last year, saying that the 2005 scorecard did “not provide a sound basis for evidence based policy”. They probably won’t like the new one any better.
