Infrastructure for Shared Use
The operators of public electronic communication networks are entitled to request shared use of another operator’s (or third party’s) electronic communications infrastructure when deemed necessary, for the sake of a competitive, effective and efficient performance of electronic communication activities.
The Regulatory Agency for Electronic Communications and Postal Services has set up a database of capacities that may be subject to shared use and access, based on the data provided by the electronic communications operators, in accordance with the Law on Electronic Communications ("Official Gazette of RS ", Nos. 44/10, 60/13 - CC and 62/14) and the Rulebook on the manner of collection and publication of the data on type, availability and geographic location of electronic communications network capacities ("Official Gazette of RS", No. 66/15).
Pursuant to Article 52 of the Law, the Agency shall keep an up-to-date database on type, availability and geographic location of the capacities that may be subject to shared use.
The Rulebook foresees that a record of the electronic communication network capacities that may be subject to shared use, in the form of an aggregated database, shall be kept.
Pursuant to Article 8 of the Rulebook, the Agency shall be responsible for access establishment and regulation, as well as for the financing, maintenance and management of the Database.
The Database contains information on network antenna masts and telecommunications cable ducting.
The operators wishing to lease the infrastructure are obliged to provide all requested details and information. If a newly built infrastructure is to be leased, the required details must be provided within 15 days from the beginning of its use. The operators are obliged to update their information at least once quarterly.
