The telecommunications sector over the last decades has gone through a long reform process, which has introduced elements of competition in a market characterized by a natural monopoly configuration and State control due to its network structure. This chapter aims to give a snapshot of the reform paths at the EU level and the level of individual Member States. Similar to other sectors of general economic interest, the process of European integration has been a strong driver in these policy reforms. Despite cross-country differences, the privatization and liberalization processes have brought developments for the whole sector in terms of more consumer choice, lower prices and better quality of service.
