This article examines European telecommunications through the conceptual lenses of the ‘competition’ and the ‘regulatory’ state, exploring their complementarities and tensions. It analyses the EU's electronic communications regulatory framework, exposing contradictions in the EU-level competition and regulatory state in telecommunications in the context of the well-developed variety at the national level.
