The new BEREC Net Neutrality Measurement Tool will be available later in 2019. Many European regulators are waiting for this, as they are planning to implement the crowd-sourcing tool at their agency. Alternatively, they might have an existing system and are not sure what the best approach in regard to the new tool would be.
Now it is the perfect time for regulators to start planning the implementation in their own country. Specure is the optimal implementation partner, with rich experience from previous projects and innovative solutions. That is why from September, Specure offers a series of introductory, on-premise workshops for its customers and partners.Continue reading “BEREC Net Neutrality Measurement Tool – Implementation Workshops”
Our products are used from the polar circle in Scandinavia to Tanzania, a country well below the equator. We have run several frequency auctions across Europe, transforming the 5g vision to reality, country by country. We also helped the telecom regulators measure, assess, visualise and report on the market KPIs, by providing them with timely and accurate information about the internet service quality and coverage.
We will post regular updates about the current projects and other activities here. If you do not want to miss any update, we encourage you subscribe to our newsletter.
