In July 2005, the Regulatory Authority for Telecommunications and Posts (RegTP) was renamed the Federal Network Agency for Electricity, Gas, Telecommunications, Posts and Railways.

It is an independent higher federal authority in the portfolio of the Ministry of Economics.

The task of the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) is to open up the various markets for the above-mentioned areas to new providers through liberalisation and deregulation. The decisions of the Federal Network Agency are based on the Telecommunications Act (TKG), the Postal Act and the Energy Industry Act and are subject to legal review.
