Analysis of the enforcement of the regulatory strategy


2008-02-20

 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am pleased to offer you this Report. It sums up more than just nearly two years of my work as the President of the Office of Electronic Communications (UKE), or the work of my Deputy and all UKE staff, but it also reflects more lasting trends observed on the Polish telecommunications market.

In my capacity of the President of UKE I have adopted the following fundamental objectives to guide my activities:

  • enhancing competition on the Polish telecommunications market
  • reducing prices for services offered on this market
  • improving the attractiveness and affordability of telecommunications offers for consumers.

The current condition of the Polish telecommunications market is impressive, mostly because of  major changes, which have taken place in the recent years. 

  • The value of the Polish telecommunications market and the number of customers on that market are increasing
  • Prices are dramatically falling in all segments of the market
  • In some of its segments, in addition to lower service prices, customers are getting a much better price to value ratio
  • Most areas of the market are becoming increasingly competitive

A look at the individual areas of the market shows that they do not all increase in value. The value of voice services in fixed telephony has noted a significant decline. However, these are customer preferences and choices not only in Poland, as similar patterns are to be observed also in other countries.

Obviously, not all market change results from UKE's efforts. Some changes and evolution result from consumer preferences, which are stronger than any regulatory capabilities. Nonetheless, I draw deep satisfaction from the analysis of changes since the end of 2005 to this day. I derive the greatest pleasure from increased competition and falling prices, which have been the focus of UKE's interest. Additional reports, to be published in the weeks to come, will be devoted to price reductions.

I trust that the coming months will show more positive changes taking place on the Polish telecommunications market.

I sincerely encourage you to read this Report and, in particular, to compare the contents of Chapters 1 and 4: the description of the market at the end of 2005 and at the end of Q3 1007, as well as to analyse Chapter 5, i.e. the conclusions stemming from this Report.

I wish to thank all the operators, who have taken a very dutiful approach to filling in UKE's data gathering forms. 

  

Sincerely,
Anna Streżyńska
