Explanation:
"National roaming" stellt gegenüber Netzzugängen (besondere Netzzugänge im Sinne des TKG) ein aliud dar.

I probably should have included a translation of the phrase.

My translation would be:

"National roaming" is something quite different from network accesses (especially network accesses in the sense of the Telecommunications Act, TKG). - If you ever need more info on the translation of German legislation, have a look at the site below. It has many official German government translations, for example: "90 Post- und Fernmeldewesen
Telekommunikationsgesetz - TKG 900-7-5
(Telecommunications Act) Stand: vom 25.7.96 BMPT, Ref. für Presse- und Öffentlichkeitsarbeit, Bonn. 1996"

aliud in Latin-English too / a different situation


Explanation:
something other than what was agreed. in Latin it means something like "another" - "The first 4 are numbered (the rest simply begin Aliud miraculum est, 'Another wonder is' or Est aliud mirabile, 'There is another wonder') and are not located in Wales..."

...other...


Explanation:
aliud in Latin means 'other', neutral form. Instead of saying ...represents something other... stylistically the better form would be represents an alternative or other means.
