Broadband Internet access, which main characteristics are the high debit in the reception of information (data, voice and video) and an ''always on'' feature, may be obtained through offers over the copper access network (through xDSL technology, ADSL standing out), cable distribution networks (using cable modems) and new infrastructures (such as optical fibre, wireless access, 3rd generation mobile systems and electric power distribution networks).
Considering the need to foster the offer of services, such as broadband Internet access, very relevant for the development of the information society, ANACOM considers as one of its important goals to insure competitive conditions for the provision of this service.
Along with the initiatives of several operators and of other public entities, ANACOM has intensified its intervention in the scope of the broadband market, the following matters standing out: changes to the ?Rede ADSL PT? wholesale offer, aimed at increasing the number of access points, reducing deadlines and prices, and improving the effective quality of service; the reduction of deadlines and prices and the improvement of the quality of service in connection with the reference unbundling offer (RUO); and the follow-up of the broadband markets and the local loop unbundling, which has been reflected on the considerable increase in broadband penetration.
The follow-up of markets involves their analysis, the definition of relevant markets, the evaluation of market power and the setting, maintenance, modification or suppression of obligations to companies with or without significant market power.
ANACOM has concluded this process in connection with the broadband Internet access service, defining five relevant markets, which conclusions you may refer to in this area: market 7 ? minimum set of leased lines; market 11 ? wholesale provision of unbundled access (including shared access) to metallic loops and sub-loops to provide broadband and voice services; market 12 - wholesale provision of broadband access; market 13 - wholesale market for leased line terminal segments; and market 14 - wholesale market for leased line transit segments.
