3G – Third Generation Mobile Communications

The introduction and roll-out of third-generation mobile communications in Europe is being hampered by different factors: the economic slowdown, the financial problems of the mobile telecoms sector which is burdened with extremely heavy licencing and infrastructure costs, and the lack of 3G devices and services. The EU is trying to create a stable regulatory environment for a harmonised introduction of these new mobile systems.
