Urgently searching for a primer on and brief history of telecom regulation the EU.

I'm finishing up a term paper (on net neutrality) and am looking for a simple rundown of how telecom is regulated in the EU and a history of how this has changed since, say the early 2000s or so. Does such an article (I have access to a pretty decent variety of academic journals online, through sources like Westlaw, Lexis, Hein, JSTOR, etc.) or website exist? I have a gathered a lot of detailed information on very recent proposals and changes to the regulatory scheme, but I can't seem to get any clear information with sufficient background for a non-European for me to place this in context. I just need a basic understanding of the framework and how it evolved prior to the new set of rules developed from 2007-2009 and set down in 2009 (I've got a decent understanding of the newer regs). I could probably leave this information out, but it would definitely better if I could include something like this and have worn myself out looking for something that doesn't leave out a ton of background (for example, just jumping into a discussion on SMP without saying how it actually was enforced).
If anyone has any suggestions for reading (in English), I'd be extremely grateful.
