Plenary meeting - San Juan

The Regulatel plenary meeting was held last 17-18 November in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The following stand out among the issues discussed: the joining of a new member (Uruguayan regulator); the choice of presidency for 2016 (Colombian regulator); determination of the working groups’ structure for 2015 (End Users & Quality of Service (QoS), Net Neutrality (NN) and Internet Issues, Economic Competition in Markets and Benchmark); and selection of the Executive Committee’s members.

The gathering was attended by representatives from organisations with which Regulatel cooperates or may eventually cooperate, such as the European Commission (EC), the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

The next meetings are scheduled for March 2015 (working groups), July 2015 (Regulatel-BEREC summit) and November 2015 (plenary session).
