A new book from Professor Stanisław Piątek, an established authority on telecommunications law, brings the reader closer to the inner workings of broadband technology in its legal environment. The title reflects the focus of telecoms policy on access whereby the only access that matters is to the broadband network in its many variations. The subject matter itself makes the book worth reading, particularly in the absence of other major Polish works on this topic. Even if some authors regarded broadband technologies as obsolete years ago1, in reality it still represents a lion’s share of the telecoms business. Professor Piątek himself is well aware of the historical and transitory nature of the subject matter when he defines broadband not by association with any particular technology but as the ability of whatever technology available at any given moment to provide a certain minimum transmission speed. Thus the central notion is open to absorb technologies nonexistent as of yet. This in turn may pose serious regulatory issues as to what future industries will be subject to regulation, particularly since the distinction between content and carrier regulation is becoming increasingly blurred.
