EC leans on Luxembourg on 2003 directive

Luxembourg has been given two months to transpose an EU directive on telecoms services into national law by the European Commission. The directive was passed down in 2003 by the European Court of Justice but, thus far, Luxembourg has failed to implement it.

The EC has written to Luxembourg arguing that the country has failed to make transparent, procedures for obtaining the right to roll out networks near roads and railway lines.

Luxembourg faces a second court hearing if it fails to comply if the EC is not satisfied with its response and could face fines until transparent procedures are implemented.
