The European Union Parliament and the European Commission have been adopting initiatives to break up state monopolies in the telecommunications industry and open up the market to competition. The Parliament has adopted a compromise package consisting of five reports that supposedly strike a balance between sector-specific rules and Union competition rules in general. The five reports concern the authorization and regulation of new electronic communications networks and services, radio spectrum allocation, access and interconnection to existing networks and universal service. Meanwhile, the Commission wants the power to overrule national telecommunications regulatory authorities.
