Dáil Eireann Debate
64. Mr. G. Murphy asked the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources his proposals to encourage greater competition through deregulation of the mobile telephone service; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26533/06]
The communications market in Ireland is fully liberalised. Responsibility for the regulation of electronic communication service providers rests with the independent regulator, the Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg), in accordance with the requirements of the Communications (Regulation) Act, 2002 and the regulations, which transpose the EU Regulatory Framework for Electronic Communications.
ComReg is independent in the exercise of its functions and has as one of its key objectives, under the Communications Regulation Act, 2002, the promotion of competition in the exercise of its functions.
