Reding idea splits EU

European Union officials reportedly are at odds of EU Commissioner Viviane Reding's proposal to create a pan-European regulatory authority that would force telecom companies to split into retail and wholesale units.

Other EU officials are worried that the such a move would threaten future investment in telecom in European countries. It appears that a movement is building against Reding's idea, and even if it is approved by the EU itself, it still must be approved by the individual governments of 27 EU countries and the European Parliament before it could take effect.
