Competitive conditions in fixed broadband markets can vary across regions of a country. Cable networks and new networks based on fibre are competing with the traditional copper network.

National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) in several member states have defined geographic markets for wholesale central access (market 3b/2014) and deregulated some of them. Geographic remedies for wholesale local access (market 3a/2014) are less common and usually limited to geographically differentiated price control.
