Establishing an internal telecommunication/E-Communication market10 presents remarkable advantages for the whole continent of Europe and could be supported by creating a central European regulatory agency. Is the European Electronic Communications Market Authority proposed in the 2006 review an "end in itself", or could it perhaps help to achieve the goal of "regulatory consistency" by playing a supporting role in establishing the internal market and minimising actual obstacles to the internal market? Balancing accountability and autonomy is a main consideration for creating a new agency. This thesis analyses whether a central European regulatory agency (e.g. like the European Electronic Communications Market Authority or Group of European Regulators in Telecoms proposed by the Commission) can improve the consistency of NRA decisions and thereby facilitating the establishment and consolidation of the EU internal market and examines how these goals can best be reached. Within this thesis the relevant EU and NRAs documents (e.g. Commissions public "call for input?; Commission Reports on Implementation of the Regulatory Package; external studies commissioned by DG InfoSoc and relevant EU directive-drafts and the current regulatory framework of communication, Directives concerning actual European agencies, et cetera) shall be analysed, national/ international and community regulatory instruments and process shall be compared. The result of the thesis is that the option of a European regulator may offer the best prospects for creating a truly single market in e-communications and lead to a consistent market in communication within Europe.
