This Brief summarises research undertaken by London Economics for the European Commission. The research provides first data on investments in the electronic communications markets in the EU Member States and analyses sources of differences across Member States, sectors and competitors (incumbent versus new entrants).

It also provides a comparative analysis of growth of the electronic communications sector in the EU and other large geographical markets.  Finally, it focuses on aspects of the electronic communications regulatory framework that could be improved to stimulate growth and investments.
