In this opinion to the Chamber of Representatives BIPT states that because of the existing Royal Decree of 9 July 2013 on the alert messages searching to curtail electronic communications services costs and the BIPT Council Decision of 20 November 2012 on the list of limits operators must offer their customers as stipulated in Article 112 of the ECA, the added value of said legislative proposal is unclear.

The differences between the legislative proposal and the existing legislation are not necessarily beneficial to users and will cause unnecessary adaptation costs for operators.
