Telecommunications Law and Regulation takes these changes into account, including an examination of the EU New Regulatory Framework, as well as theestablishment of the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC). There are also new chapters on spectrum management (radio frequencies), and consumer protection rules.
