SIGNIFICANT MARKET POWER (SMP)

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Under the current EC Directives, an operator designated as having SMP is subject to specific obligations such as the requirement to produce an RIO and the obligation to have cost-oriented tariffs (except for mobile operators). An operator is presumed to have SMP if it has more than 25% of a telecommunications market in the geographic area in which it is allowed to operate.
