Reding Faces Resistance

9:05 AM -- Signs are emerging that Viviane Reding, the energetic and charismatic European Union telecom commissioner, is facing opposition to her latest regulatory plans.

Reding, who has already changed the face of the European mobile sector, is keen on creating a pan-European telecom "super regulator" and introducing measures that could force incumbent carriers to create autonomous divisions for their access networks, a process known as "structural separation."

A report in the International Herald Tribune, though, suggests that other EU commissioners are not so keen on Reding's plans. Read the IHT's story here.
