On 23 November 2012 the President of the Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) issued new conditions for access to cable ducts owned by Telekomunikacja Polska S.A. (TP).
The Reference Offer (also called ROI Offer) is addressed to telecommunications operators and local government units and regulates the process of providing access to the cable ducts on the basis of bilateral agreements. It contains a specimen framework agreement which details the rights and obligations of the parties. The ROI Offer also introduces a new type of access based on the long-term lease of cable ducts (15-25 years), which should make investments in infrastructure more feasible. The President of the UKE hopes that the new conditions of the ROI Offer will facilitate a faster roll-out of next-generation networks.
