Investment Incentives & Innovation-Centric Rules to Achieve an Inclusive Gigabit Europe

During the FT-ETNO summit kick-off, CEOs from Europe’s top telecommunication companies took the opportunity to issue a joint statement. The EU should be a world leader in digital ensuring that all Europeans can tap into the digital opportunity. 

While consumer demand, technology and markets will be the main drivers of change, policymakers and legislators have a critical role to play: help facilitate the actual roll-out and take-up of networks and services. As part of this, the upcoming legislative work on the Directive establishing a “European Electronic Communications Code” will prove crucial. 

We call upon the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council to drive the debate by setting two main objectives. First, ensure inclusive broadband investment to benefit consumers and secondly, achieve an innovation-centric framework.
