Lack of ambition on EU spectrum reform will slow down the 5G ambition

The telecoms industry is concerned about the current legislative debate on the future of mobile connectivity and spectrum management in Europe. As the European Parliament and Member States discuss amendments to the draft European Electronic Communications Code, ETNO and the GSMA fear that legislators have abandoned their ambitions for 5G roll-out in Europe.

Our members are committed to achieving the 5G and gigabit society objectives, but Europe’s ambition needs to be mirrored in all the upcoming legislative choices. ETNO and the GSMA believe that several aspects of the Commission proposal should be maintained or strengthened, as they constitute an essential pre-requisite for the achievement of the goals set out in the 5G Action Plan.
