This invaluable title provides you with an introduction to the basic communications technologies that are changing almost every aspect of our lives 

Telecommunications Law describes the emergence of regulation at the domestic and international level and considers the legal relationships which may exist between network and service providers. Attention is given also to the emerging “over the top” services such as voice over the Internet (VoIP) telephony. Contractual relationships between providers and consumers are analysed and extensive consideration is given to consumer protection issues in the context of universal service and privacy protection. 

The new third edition: 
  • Discusses the latest version of the Electronic Communications Code 
  • Covers elements of the Digital Economy Act 2017, such as universal service obligations and liability for on-line activities 
  • Looks into the future of the industry, including 5G and the Internet of Things 

Professor Ian Lloyd 
Ian is associated with telecommunications law teaching at a number of universities including the Higher School of Economics in Moscow. He is a Director of the United Kingdom Telecommunications Academy. 

Professor David Mellor OBE 
David spent 50 years in the telecommunications sector working at all levels from technician apprentice to Main Board Director of one of the first privatised enterprises in the mobile communications sector.
