ETNO welcomes the European Commission plans on “A European strategy for digital industrial leadership within a Digital Single Market”. These comprehensive, future-oriented plans on cloud, ICT standards, IoT and digital government recognise that digital is re-shaping the approach to industrial policies as a whole.
Steven Tas, Chairman of ETNO, said: “In just a few years, digitalisation can add fresh job and growth opportunities for Europeans. Getting broadband investment and service innovation right is the pre-requisite”.
ETNO has been the voice of Europe’s telecommunications network operators since 1992 and has become the principal policy group for European electronic communications network operators. Its 41 members and observers from Europe and beyond are the backbone of Europe’s digital progress. They are the main drivers of broadband and are committed to its continual growth in Europe. ETNO brings together the main investors in innovative and high-quality e-communications platforms and services, representing 60% of total sector investment.
