Latvia: European Commission is concerned spectrum charges are not objective, transparent and proportionate

[ec] The European Commission today launched legal action against Latvia over the administrative charges levied by the “Electronic Communications Office” (Elektronisko sakaru direkcija (ESD)), one of Latvia’s national telecoms regulators. The Commission is concerned that the administrative charges collected from companies for controlling the usage of the radio spectrum are not imposed in an objective, transparent and proportionate way. The Commission therefore has decided to send a letter of formal notice, the first step in an infringement proceeding, to the Latvian authorities.
