Telcos call for a customer-friendly and innovation-ready approach

This week, the European Commission has presented its Proposal for a Regulation on e-Privacy, intended to replace Directive 2002/58/EC and adding to the existing General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

ETNO and GSMA Europe recognise the European Commission’s goal to protect the confidentiality of electronic communications and establish a harmonised framework for electronic communication data. We also call for legislators to ensure that the final Regulation takes into account new services and that all providers are subject to the same rules.

As Director General of ETNO Lise Fuhr said: “There is no European data economy without an innovation-oriented Regulation. Telcos should be able to innovate and provide more choice to European customers”.
