European Telecommunications Network Operators' Association

Sigve Brekke, President and CEO of Telenor Group


Sigve Brekke, President and CEO of Telenor Group, has 3 key messages for European regulators:

"We need spectrum policies across Europe, which are harmonised, such that we both know how to plan but we also know what the road-map is for the years to come. 
The second one would be allowing us to use your data in an efficient way, within the privacy laws,that we can use data to personalise offers, with the benefit for our own customers. 
And the third one would be: you have to allow us to do what is best for the industry structure. So when you now have three operators in China, four operators in the US, coming down to three operators in China, and you have more than one hundred operators in Europe, that is not sustainable. And I do not want Europe to be left behind all of those big countries. Europe should be, as we have been, in the front run of technology innovation and in the digital innovation, as well.
