Christophe Forax, the cabinet member of EU Media Commisioner Viviane Reding responsible for Networks and Convergence, told the plenary session the Commission was operating a policy of "platform neutrality" across all broadband networks.

Forax refered to recent controversy on its directive to Dutch cable operators to allow third party access providers onto their nets. He said all network providers – telcos, alternative providers and cable – must be treated equally.

He also called for nation states to streamline their regulatory regimes and develop a 'one stop shop' approach to regulation.
