ETNO ThinkDigital Interview with Lise Fuhr, Director General, ETNO


What does a Gigabit Society for all Europeans mean and what are the regulatory enablers? Can telcos enable consumer choice in the digital services field? Lise Fuhr, ETNO Director General, answers our questions in the latest ThinkDigital interview.

"If we look at the Gigabit Society and what role it plays in Europe, we had a study made together with Accenture that showed that 100 million euros a day is lost for telcos and we can actually turn this around to an opportunity. And I think that if we all look into the 500 billion euros that we need of investment in infrastructure, this is actually a key thing in enabling the Gigabit Society" explains Lise Fuhr.
