Uni Europa Icts and Etno have released today a joint paper on the Electronic Communications Code. Both groups call on legislators to ensure that the code supports current jobs, new job creation as well as growth and investment. The paper also outlines a series of issues. Uni Europa Icts and Etno say they "are concerned that the relationship between this legislation and the creation of more employment and growth are not currently at the heart of the discussions".
14% of the people in the EU do not have access to the Internet, but 8 of the 10 who do uses it at least weekly! The 2017 Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) presents the performance of Member States in a wide range of digital areas, like the use of internet by Europeans.

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.
