Access to monopoly infrastructure
Access regulation seeks to promote effective competition in markets that depend on using the services of infrastructure that cannot be economically duplicated.
On 5 November the Council released its final determination and statement of reasons. The Council determines that the services provided by the QGDN be light regulation services.
