Brussels, 31 Jan. 2018 – As the global race to 5G and AI picks up, European telecom investment is the first step to digitally empower citizens and secure the Continent’s competitiveness. However, the Electronic Communications Code (EECC) negotiations might fail the objective and result in a worsened climate for digital growth. Senior representatives from Europe’s leading telecom operators meet today in Brussels to call for improvements to the EECC, or maintain the current set of rules. This comes as the EU institutions move to a crucial phase of discussions on the EECC negotiations and ePrivacy Regulation – which will reshape Europe’s telecoms laws and set the tone for the investment environment.
Brussels, January 2018 - The value of the European data economy could reach up to 740 billion euros, or 4% of the European Union’s total GDP, by 2020. Smart solutions such as big data analytics, the Internet of Things, and connected driving thus have the potential to trigger a fourth industrial revolution.
