Analysis of markets

We define and periodically analyse the electronic communications markets in order to determine whether markets are being developed in an environment of effective competition. In cases where they are not, we impose any specific obligations that may be necessary upon the operator or operators that have been designated as having significant power in the market.

To do this we analyse the corresponding reference markets, identify and publicise the operator or operators that have significant power in the market, and finally, impose, maintain, or modify some specific obligations for such operators.

On the other hand, if we determine that the market is being developed in an environment of effective competition, we remove some of the obligations that may have been imposed upon operators that were designated in previous analyses as having significant power in the market.

 

Our review of the markets must take place within a period of three years, counted from the date of adoption of a prior measure related to that market, and within a period of two years after adoption of the Recommendation or any updating of this for markets where the European Commission has not been previously notified.

Final resolutions in force on market analysis

In the Final Resolutions issued following analysis of the markets, it is established whether significant market power exists for one or more operators, and obligations are imposed upon such operators. The Resolutions are published by approval date.

2/2014 Market: Market for voice call termination on individual mobile networks

Mobile termination is a wholesale service provided among network operators. Each mobile operator offers this service to the rest of the operators (whether land line or mobile phone), so that they can complete the calls they handle when the recipient of these calls is a subscriber connected to that landline telephone network.

14/2003 Market: Market for wholesale leasing of trunk lines

The wholesale market for leased trunk lines regulates the service by which symmetrical transmission capacity is supplied, without switchgear features that the user can make use of to switch between two nodes of the trunk network of the operator requesting the service, regardless of the technology used to supply the capacity.

15/2003 Market: Market for call access and origination on public mobile phone networks

These services for access and origination of calls on mobile networks are wholesale services used by a mobile operator with a network to offer access and capacity to an operator that does not have usage rights for the spectrum, in order to allow this latter operator to provide voice calling and data services to its end customers. These wholesale services are essential in order to allow virtual mobile operators to provide retail services.

1/2007 and 2/2007 Markets: Retail market for access to the public telephone network at a fixed location (1/2007 Market); and Wholesale market for access and call origination on landline networks (2/2007 market)

The retail market for access to the public telephone network at a fixed location (1/2007 market) is defined as making available to end users the resources that make it possible to use telephone services. This allows a user to place and receive voice calls or faxes and to access data networks.

The wholesale service for call origination (2/2007 Market) is the service that allows an operator to send a call made by a customer who is physically connected to its network to a second operator that is interconnected with the first, in cases where the customer has selected the second operator to handle the call.

This reference market also includes services for leasing of the telephone line (AMLT in Spanish), which allows alternative operators to have indirect access to providing end customers with a single bill for all access and land line telephone services.

3a, 3b, and 4/2014 Markets: Wholesale local access provided at a fixed location and the wholesale broadband access markets

The wholesale market for local access provided at a fixed location includes the set of infrastructure elements that allow the operator to establish a transmission channel towards the final user. This market includes wholesale disaggregation services for the copper pair lines and disaggregation of fibre optics until reaching the home, which in turn includes virtual disaggregation of the fibre-optic loop.

The wholesale markets for broadband access include non-physical or virtual access to the network at a fixed location, including indirect access, which is being used by an operator to provide broadband access service to its end users over another operator's network, with the end user gaining access via a connection between this user's network and this other operator's network.

3/2007 Market: Market for call termination on the individual public networks of each landline operator

The wholesale call termination service on fixed networks is one of the services needed in order to provide retail services for landline telephone traffic. This is provided by one landline telephone operator to the rest of the operators (whether land line or mobile phone), so that they can complete the calls they handle when the recipient of these calls is a subscriber connected to that landline telephone network.

18/2003 Market: Wholesale market for television signal transmission

These are services for transmitting television signals. They can be defined as those that include the set of technical activities involved in making audiovisual content available to the public, produced by those transmitting them through telecommunication services as a distribution channel.

6/2007 Market: Market for wholesale leasing of terminal lines

This is the wholesale service for leased lines, which is the transmission service offered to other operators for permanent connection between two points through a public telecommunications network. The leased terminal lines are those that are provided to other operators and through which a section of circuit is supplied that will be used as part of the access network for the operator requesting the service, regardless of the technology used to supply this capacity.
