Following its decision no.01-898 dated 5 October 2001, Autorité de régulation des télécommunications (ART) conducted a survey on three telecommunications markets: dial-up Internet termination , broadband leased lines and data transmission and interconnection services. These surveys were meant to anticipate the future action of the regulator in the new European framework (Directive 2002 / 21 / EC) .
During the surveys, meetings were held with sector players (providers and clients) between November and January 2002. The main conclusions were presented to players in an interconnection economics subcommittee (for the interconnection services survey ), at an ad hoc meeting (for the broadband leased lines and data transmission survey ) and to one meeting of the CCRST (the Telecommunications Networks and Services Consultative Commission) for all three surveys.
A summary of each of these surveys was made public today, excluding elements protected by professional secrecy.
