The mission of the President of the Office of Electronic Communications is to provide the Polish society with access to modern telecommunications and postal services, while maintaining transparency and effective communication policy with regard to actions taken by UKE.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I took over the position of the President of the Office of Electronic Communications at a moment which is both important and interesting for the market.
At the time of changes in users' preferences and operators' capabilities. At the moment when the classic market model based on the pillars of fixed-line telephony, mobile telephony and the Internet clearly goes down in history, giving way to modern solutions based on broadband access and technological neutrality.
Today, mobility is a necessary but not sufficient condition for the consumer's satisfaction. The boundaries between telecommunications and media in a strict sense are increasingly blurred. The electronic communications market poses challenges to all its participants. Service providers are trying to meet growing expectations of consumers. Users are forced to keep up with technological advances. At the same time, both sides of the market are looking for solutions that ensure maximum benefits to each of them.
The postal services market faces preparations for the liberalization process to be completed. This requires the Regulator to prepare the environment and market participants for operating in a new reality.
It is in this space that an effective Regulator must define its role.
While presenting to you the "Regulatory Strategy until 2015", I would like to describe the priority areas for further activity of the Regulator in the telecommunications and postal markets. I believe that this strategy will meet the needs of users, entrepreneurs and the industry alike. I am fully aware of the challenges faced by the Regulator and I believe that further actions of UKE will ensure stability and market balance, thus broadening the investment perspective of telecommunications undertakings, as well as improving the quality and performance of services available to customers.
I am convinced that the coming years of cooperation will be satisfying to all of us.
President of the Office of Electronic Communications
