Infrastructure Sharing Duct Access – Current concerns • Growing number of disputes and complaints Infrastructure Sharing Duct Access – Current concerns • Growing number of disputes and complaints indicates that following issues should be decided in near time: – Stale information on existing duct routes: routes • Operators in order to obtain duct access are required to provide map indicating the duct routes which they intend to rent; • Information on duct routes is available from municipalities; • Since 2009 new ducts are not registered within national register of real estate. – Electronic map of duct routes: • Incumbent argues the development of e-map of duct routes would incur huge investments and therefore is not economically justified; • Only few e-maps are available across EU, i. e. Portugal, Spain. • Access to the e-map is usually quite expensive: – i. e. 60 000 EUR per year in Spain. • At the moment RRT is considering possibility to develop common e-map.
