Electronic Communications
Strategy 2021 – 2023

The electronic communications sector plays a vital role in supporting consumers and businesses to live, work and communicate.

Competition and Investment

Over the past five years, end-users in Ireland have benefited from access to new networks offering high-speed data communications both at fixed locations and on the move. Regulation has been a critical factor in enabling the environment in which these investments have occurred.

Consumer Protection

Consumers can choose and use electronic communications services with confidence.

Consumer Protection involves setting rules to ensure that consumers can access basic services and that they are armed with the information they need to engage with the market with confidence.

The Consumer Journey

Connectivity and Network Resilience

End-users have widespread access to high-quality and secure communications networks, services and applications.

As our reliance on electronic communications has grown, we have also become more dependent and reliant on the proper functioning of our electronic communications.

Connectivity and Network Resilience
Strategic Framework

Compliance and Enforcement

ComReg’s view is that a strong and effective deterrence regime and regulatory powers helps develop a positive culture of compliance within the electronic communications sector.

We continuously monitor the application of regulatory obligations to ensure markets develop properly and seek to take targeted enforcement action in a way that maximises the effectiveness of the regulatory regime.
