In half of the European countries the regulator defined sub-national geographic markets 03 June 24 Alessandro Mauro

More European countries have some form of geographic aspect to regulate the wholesale broadband markets 1/2020 and 3b/2014.

In particular, the latest Cullen International benchmark found that the number of countries with sub-national geographic markets doubled in the last six years, from eight in 2018 to sixteen in 2024.

The number of countries with geographically differentiated remedies within the same national or sub-national market remained stable in market 1/2020, while market 3b/2014 is being progressively deregulated.

Cullen International’s benchmark provides an overview of the geographic regulation adopted by the national regulatory authorities (NRAs) in 31 European countries.
