The ARCEP launches a Public Consultation from 28 May to 28 June 2013 on the analysis of the wholesale markets of the vocal fix, mobile and SMS call termination of metropolitan France and overseas territories for the 2014-2016 period and issues a document related to the regulation Appraisal and Perspectives.

The ARCEP gathers for the first time the three categories of vocal fix, mobile and SMS call termination wholesale markets because of the structural similarities and common competition issues of the three sectors. In accordance with articles L. 37-3 and D. 301 of the French Code des Postes et des Communications Electroniques, the ARCEP submits its decision draft to public consultation before obtaining the advice of the antitrust regulator and notifying it to the European Commission, to the Electronic communications European regulators body and to the competent authorities of the European Union Member States.
