Polish Telecom Regulator’s Decisions Regarding Mobile
AbstractThe article presents key issues relating to the methods of mobile termination rates calculation by the Polish National Regulatory Agency (NRA): the UKE President. It analyses the provisions of Polish telecommunications law of 20041 with respect to the rights and obligations of the UKE President. It invokes specific cases showing how problematic rates calculation is for mobile operators. The Polkomtel, PTK Centertel, PTC sp. z o.o. cases clearly show how unclear the calculation process may be in practice and illustrate how broad the discretionary powers of the UKE President are in this respect on the grounds of Polish telecommunications law. Highlighted is also the dispute between the Polish NRA and the European Commission. Even though the UKE President acts on the grounds of Polish law, its actions have to be compliant with the European telecoms package and take into utmost account the recommendations and comments issued by the European Commission.
